Search tips

Searches on the Hub

Searches on the Hub deal only with these things: title, summary, keywords, publisher and/or author.

Search queries are divided into terms and operators.


Terms come in two types: Single Terms and Phrases.

  • A Single Term is a single word such as 'scaffolding' or 'outdoor'.
  • A Phrase is a group of words surrounded by double quotes, eg "indoor play".


‘Boolean’ operators ('OR' and 'AND') allow several terms to be combined, to form a more complex query.

You must enter them using capital letters (eg, 'OR', not 'or' and 'AND', not 'and').

The OR operator

  • The OR operator is the default (assumed) operator. So, if you do not enter a Boolean operator between two terms, the OR operator will be used.
  • The OR operator links two search terms and finds matching resources if either of the terms exist in their title, summary, keywords, and listed publisher and/or author. For example, both of these searches will return the same result:

    "service management" leadership

    "service management" OR leadership

The AND operator

The AND operator matches items where both terms exist in their title, summary, keywords, and listed publisher and/or author. For example, the following will start a search for things on the Hub that contain "assessment" as well as "rating":

"assessment" AND "rating"

Mental disorders in Australian 4- to 17- year olds: Parent-reported need for help

This research described the extent to which parents reported that 4- to 17-year-olds with symptoms of mental health disorders need help, the types of help required, the extent this need is being met and the factors associated with needing  help. The research found that many children and adolescents meeting diagnostic criteria for mental disorders are not having their needs for help met. Parents of 79% of 4- to 17-year-olds with mental disorders reported that their child needed help, and of these, only 35% had their needs fully met.
