ZimLII Website How To: Search and Filter 

Using AND to expand results by mandatory inclusion of extra search word(s). So, typing into the search bar "provisional order"AND "lapsed" will produce results with all documents which have the terms ‘provisional order’ and ‘lapsed’ in them.

Using OR to expand results to show either one or the other search word(s). So typing into the search bar "theft" OR "Corruption" will produce results with documents on the website that have the word corruption only, OR the word theft only and some may have both terms.

Using NOT to limit results by forcing EXCLUSION of words/phrases. So typing into the search bar "theft" NOT "vehicle" will produce results with all documents on the website which have the term theft but not the term vehicle.
