Boolean search
The Boolean connectors also known as and, or, not are used to combine more search words. You have to use lower case letters, English language and put search words in quotes " ".

and: The system uses and as a default if you search for two words and does not indicate anything else. E.g. health education would be the same as "health" and "education".
or: E.g. ”photovoltaic” or ”PV”. This seach would find materials where either the concept ”photovoltaic” or ”PV” or both concepts are mentioned.
not: "Kindergarten" not "nursery". This search would find materials where the word kindergarten is mentioned and at the same time not mentioning nursery.
 
Truncation
If you make a search where your search words can have different endings, you can put an asterix after the word*. E.g.: If you search the word sustainab* you will also get sustainable, sustainability etc.

Wildcard
Wildcard is used as a joker in the middle of a word.  E.g.: Wom?n finds both woman and women.
