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"
