Searching for Multiple Terms

You specify whether you want to see documents that contain all of your search terms ("and" in traditional search language), or that contain at least one of your search terms ("or"). For example, if searching for information about F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel, The Great Gatsby. You can search for pages with "Fitzgerald" AND "Great" AND "Gatsby" in them, or pages that contain "Fitzgerald" OR "Great" OR "Gatsby" OR any combination of the three terms. Some search engines allow more sophisticated searching. Be sure to check the options or help pages for the search engine you use.
