HeinOnline's Venn Diagram Search offers a visual representation of how search terms interact with each other to help users both refine their current search terms and become better researchers going forward.
Let's explore racial profiling in criminal justice with Venn Diagram Search, which can be accessed under Advanced Search. Searches are constructed by stringing together multiple terms separated by the Boolean operator "AND," with phrases grouped together in quotation marks.
In this example, let's search for discrimination AND profiling AND police to bring up 31 results in the Venn Diagram.
The results displayed on the right side of the page pertain to the search as we originally constructed it (represented by the red slice in the center of the intersecting circles). If we're interested in the results in the other circles, select Clear for the ability to hover over the different segments of the diagram. Once Clear is clicked, the thirty-one results will vanish from the right side of the page. Now as users hover over the diagram they will see all possible search term combinations from our original query. In our example, we can see results for discrimination AND profiling, profiling AND police, discrimination AND police, and the terms discrimination, police and profiling individually. Click one of these highlighted circles or intersections to explore their results. For example, we can change our search to see the 123 results for discrimination AND police by clicking that slice of the diagram. Sort the results, save or export, turn to the specific page of a result, or start at the beginning of a given title.
