Proximity operators

A code or term used primarily in online searching which enables the relationship between two or more search terms to be defined. One type of proximity operator indicated the search terms should be next to one another, but in any order. Other types of proximity operators indicate that the terms must be within a specified number of characters or words of each other or must appear in a given order. Examples include nearwithinbefore, and after. (See also boolean operators)

Locations and services are highlighted, and the tour takes about an hour. You can use your mobile device or check out an iPad from the Circulation Desk.
