Searching Boolean Phrases

A Boolean search is a type of search allowing users to combine keywords with operators (or modifiers) such as AND, NOT and OR to further produce more relevant results. For example, a Boolean search could be "hotel" AND "New York". This would limit the search results to only those documents containing the two keywords.

There are a lot of websites on the internet (anyone can make a website!), and many of them are based on people's opinions, outdated data, or questionable information. It is important to be able to tell these apart from reliable sources that are current, authoritative, and accurate. In order to do this, you can apply the C.R.A.P. test for evaluating resources, which was developed by Molly Beestrum, and is used by educators and students. The link below to Evaluating Websites is to a website that delves into the specifics of how to evaluate a resource, and be sure it is something that you want to use in your research.
Evaluating WebsitesThis website, part of Colorado Community Colleges Online, explains how to evaluate websites using the C.R.A.P. test. Comprehensive and easy to understand, it's an excellent resource for teaching students to evaluate websites.
