There were some in stock, but not enough for Thomas and I. What's wrong with the sentence above?
"Thomas and I" should be "Thomas and me". A good way to check that you're using proper pronouns in sentences like these is to remove the other party and re-read it to yourself. Which sounds better: "There wasn't enough for I" or "There wasn't enough for me"?

What are Boolean operators and do I really need to use them?
While you don't NEED to use them, they can make narrowing your results within search engines much easier. Boolean operators are typically capitalized conjunctions, i.e., AND and OR, or punctuation like quotation marks and asterisks that you use to enhance your search terms, making them more broad or specific. For instance, if you're searching a database for papers that discuss nursing and libraries, you might try the string nursing AND libraries. If you want papers with a specific word, try "nursing" AND "libraries". If you want to broaden the search term "libraries" to variations like library or librarians, you might use libra** in your string.
