Visit the NHTI Library home page to use the newest search feature, Quick Search.
Notice that the library has updated the home page to include a single search box, that offers the user Boolean searching capability, and links to the library catalog, E journals and over 75 databases. Here is an easy, yet powerful way to access the library’s holdings and databases from a single search box.
To use this feature effectively, combine your keyword(s) with a Boolean operator as shown below:
AND to narrow the search, make the results smaller, more specific
Ex. poverty and crime; jazz and blues
OR to expand the search, search for similar terms
Ex. capital punishment or death penalty; weight lifting or body building
NOT to select one term but not the other; exclude a subject
Ex. cloning not animals; dolphins not football
As always, be sure to visit the reference librarians for tips and search help.
