What do Boolean Operators provide to a research search query?
Boolean Operators, such as "AND" or "OR", in a database search query allow for the expansion or limitation of search results. By using these operators, those performing the search are able to locate different search results or remove search results that do not relate to what it is they are looking for. When using for example "AND", searchers are able to narrow down database results to items relating to what ever is on both sides of the "AND". All of the results will have both either words or phrases included in them when that search is used, such as if a person was to type in "cats AND dogs", they would receive only results in which both cats and dogs are mentioned, this thus allows for the narrowing of the search results. On the opposite side if they did a search for "cats OR dogs" they would receive results in which one or both is mentioned and thus providing an wide range of results.

Sacagewa, who was a member of the Lemhi Shoshone people, acted as an interpreter and guide for the Lewis and Clark Expedition after she and her husband joined the part in 1804. She was able to help the members of the expedition communicate with different Native American tribes that they encountered and safely pass through different areas by acting as a guide. Sacagewa was able to identify different plants that were safe for them to eat as well saving some resources, including papers and supplies, when a boat flipped at one point during the Expedition along with helping them gain access to horses. The inclusion of Sacagewa and her baby son during the trip also may have helped to keep the Expedition safe from other groups due to their presence.
