The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.



nvented in the late 19th century, basketball quickly became the sport of choice in American high schools in the early 20th century.

With the word "basketball" at the top and a graphic showing two young men playing the game beneath, this simple poster also features a large blank space at the bottom for filling in game time and locale by hand. Posters such as this were mass produced and then customized to fit individual school's needs.
