Searching and Using Boolean Operators on HeinOnline

The HeinOnline Weblog features a tip sheet on how
to use boolean connectors when searching HeinOnline

A summary of this very useful tip sheet:

You can use boolean operators (AND, +, OR, NOT, -) in
the One-box and Advanced Search options.

Tip #1 - Boolean Operators must be all CAPITALS.
Tip #2 - A phrase must be enclosed with "quotation marks".

The tip sheet provides much more detail and illustrations.
