•Using the NOT Operator

NOT excludes a word(s) from a search; you can eliminate a word or concept from a search that is not related to your topic. 

Please note:
In our library catalog, this operator is expressed as: AND NOT, but it functions the same as the NOT operator used in many other databases

For example:  mexico NOT new mexico
