Follow along with the tutorial below to learn how to search Compass for books, articles, and more!
When searching in Compass it is helpful to use the following operators to make your search more effective:
AND joins two terms
Example: education AND inclusion
OR searches for either term
Example: inclusion OR diversity
NOT excludes a term
Example: education NOT "higher education"
* an asterisk searches for versions of a word
Example: educat* brings back results for education, educate, educates, etc.
" " forces a phrase so the words are searched for together rather than singularly
Example: "higher education" will search for the phrase
( ) allows you to search using different operations, like in a math problem
Example: education AND (diversity OR inclusion)
? replaces a letter in a word
Example: wom?n searches for women and woman
