In IUCAT, how do I narrow my search results?

If your IUCAT search finds too many results, you can narrow it with the Boolean operators AND and NOT.

You can use AND and NOT in both basic and advanced searches. You must capitalize Boolean operators in order for them to work.

For example, if you enter the following search, IUCAT will find only those records that include both terms:

 vegetarianism AND veganism

If you perform the same search with NOT, IUCAT will show records that include only the term "vegetarianism", and exclude any that contain the term "veganism":

 vegetarianism NOT veganism
Note:
If you use NOT, any record that includes both words will also be excluded.
