Panopto video on locating a book using FindIt@Bham (includes sub-titles):
'AND' narrows a search to material about separate aspects of the topic, not just one or other
'OR' broadens a search: think of 'either OR'; it brings synoyms or alternatives together
In a FindIt@Bham advanced search, the drop-down to the left of the second and further search bars is set to 'AND'
This can be changed if required
Boolean operators can be used within a single search line, such as: academic OR university OR student
Note the filters on the right of the list of results
Try using, for example, Peer-reviewed journals under Availability
Note that you can click the pin icon to the right of any result in FindIt, to save it to your Favourites.
