FindMore@NUSL works with the following operators in Upper Case only

  • AND
  • OR
  • NOT (minus operator works too)

It also supports quotes (eg "Singapore history") for phrase searching, field searching, wildcard (e.g m?n), truncation (e.g govern*) and proximity operators. For more details 

However, Boolean Operators are not necessary if you don't want to use them as by default there is a implied AND between search terms.

For example if you search for 

singapore media policy

this is the same as

singapore AND media AND policy


Also by default, FindMore does autostemming, this means it will search for variants of the same word. Eg if You type in apple, it will also match the plural form apples
