Boolean operators are connectors between words in your search that determine how your search terms work together. The 3 Boolean operators are:
If I went into Iceberg and searched on Zombies I would get back 82,077 items in my search results.
Using AND between your search terms narrows your search results; i.e. all the items in your search results will have both search words and you'll get fewer results.
Zombies AND Vampires gave me 13,812 results
Using OR between your search terms expands your search results; i.e. all the items in your search results will have one or both of your search words and you'll get more results.
Zombies OR Vampires gave me 301, 028 results
Using NOT between your search terms removes items from your search altogether; i.e. all the items in your search results will have not show anything with the second search term.
Zombies NOT Vampires gave me 68,269 results
