AND   

Academic or University or Student

Note:

  • AND is a Boolean operator in the drop-down to the left of the second search bar.  AND narrows a search to material that is about both descriptors in the two lines, not just one or other.   Boolean operators can also be used within a search line: typically, as in the second line. OR is used to bring similar descriptors together in one broader group (either / or): hence, academic OR university OR student
