Combining searches using the search history

Return to the search screen at any time by clicking the Search tab. From the Search screen, beneath the search box you will see your search history, a list of all the searches you have carried out during that session. You can re-run any of the older searches by clicking on the number of results for that line.

You can also combine searches by following the "advanced document search" link, scrolling down, and following the example in the 'Combine queries...' box. 

For example, if we have carried out a search on wellbeing OR "quality of life" and another on countryside OR "green space", these will appear in our search history as search 1 and search 2. We can combine these two searches together by entering #1 AND #2 in the 'Combine queries...' search box.
