The Block Search Builder is a tool designed to teach you how to create a search string using Boolean logic. You should be able to cut and paste the resulting string into most databases’ search boxes.
Name your core concepts (1,2 and 3) in the upper row, and your alternate terms for each concept in the rows below.
Clicking the 'create-button' will combine all terms into a proper search query/string.
Now copy and paste the above search string into a database search box.
