This tutorial is designed to help you improve the skills you use to search on-line catalogs, databases and the Internet. Sections of the tutorial deal with: Basic Searching - how to search by author, title, keyword, subject or series. Types of Search Methods - different ways that you can search for information and some tips on how to do it. Refining Your Search - how to use Boolean Search strategies to get better search results.
The main page you are taken to contains elements other than boolean: getting started, basic searching, search mentods, etc. There is a link to Refining your Search: Boolean Searching, but you have to look for it on the page. The original link should take you directly to the module for Boolean.
The actual examples given for AND, OR, and NOT are not well chosen. For example, with OR, the terms listed are motivation and adults. Why would you put an OR between these two terms? They are not synonymous. For AND, there is not good enough explanation why you would use this operator.
The interface should be cleaner, without links to other modules. That is, a person should know they are on the Boolean module. Also, the hyperlinks to the explanation on AND, OR, and NOT are not very effective. The main content should be listed on the screen with hyperlinks to supporting information.
