Searching Compass

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: educatbrings back results for education, educate, educates, etc. 

" " forces a phrase so the words are searched for together rather than singularly

Example: "higher educationwill 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
