Boolean Operators: Using the NOT Operator

In this search, School NOT Middle, all articles containing the word middle will be eliminated from the list of results. The NOT operator is useful for excluding unwanted results from articles that appear in a general search, for example articles about New York but not the Yankees baseball team would look like this: New York NOT Yankees. However, the NOT operator can also exclude relevant articles so use it carefully.
