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