Answer

Note as of 12 Dec 2012, we have launched a new superior search tool to Infogate - FindMore@NUSL which searches books, articles, dissertations & more. This is now available as the default tab on the portal as "FindMore". We highly recommend you search using that instead of InfoGate as you will get more and higher quality results at a much faster speed. InfoGate is going to be phased out but if you still want to access InfoGate for now here's the link to access it.

InfoGate passes the search terms to the actual interface of the chosen resource. So it depends on what defaults are set up at the chosen resource. Some resources recognise the adjacent terms as a phrase while others treat them as two separate terms combined by the Boolean operator "AND".
