    • Better Library Search:

      Child*

      AND bully* or bullied

      AND aggressive or violent

      AND adult*


    Boolean searching a summary

    Boolean Searching: A Summary

    • Use AND to connect unique concepts

      • bullying AND children

    • Use OR to connect synonyms

    • Use * to include all endings on a root word

      • adult*


    Boolean searching a game
