Accessing ERIC ERIC through EBSCOhost WebPortal: for off-campus access Education websites ebrary Boolean searching: Boolean searching Boolean searching is a technique supported by most library catalogs, periodical databases, and search engines. Boolean utilizes AND, OR and NOT to facilitate subject and keyword searches. In effect, it broadens and narrows search results and improves the retrieval of relevant search results. The following four (4) slides use Venn diagrams to illustrate Boolean searches. Boolean searching: Boolean searching cats AND dogs cats dogs AND AND: Shaded area is all items which contain both ‘cats’ and ‘dogs’ . This narrows your search. Boolean searching: Boolean searching OR OR: Shaded area is items which contain either ‘porpoises’ or ‘dolphins’ or a combination of both. This broadens your search. To remember this, you can think of the phrase, “more with ‘or’”. Boolean searching: Boolean searching porpoises Boolean searching: Boolean searching (schools OR repairs) NOT fish schools repairs fish Search terms can be combined, like a math equation: (x+y)=z. If you need “schools or repairs”, but want to avoid “schools of fish”, you can combine Boolean terms to improve relevant searches while filtering out unwanted results.

ERIC Searching Tips: ERIC Searching Tips Limiting Your Results: To help reduce the amount of articles found and/or to increase the amount of relevant results: Use Boolean operators. Choose “limiters,” such as: a date range, full text options, document type or publication title. Consult a thesaurus (or use the Thesaurus link in Ebsco), subject encyclopedia or dictionary to find other terms to search and/or to ensure that the term and spelling you are using is correct. For Further ERIC Help: For Further ERIC Help If the article you require is unavailable through ERIC directly or Sullivan Library’s EBSCOHost database, you can request an Interlibrary Loan through Sullivan Library.
