Boolean operators are connecting words that you can use to affect your search results. The term boolean refers to a system of logic used in database search engines, resulting in TRUE or FALSE expressions.

These words are ANDOR, and NOT. You can use them to include (TRUE) or exclude (FALSE) keywords resulting in a more focused and targeted search.
