Bone up on Boolean operators (with Zombies)

Lego figurine of zombie office worker - Public domain from https://www.flickr.com/photos/pasukaru76/5369527462/ Boolean search expressions are magical formulas compatible with most databases in which keywords are combined with Boolean operators to create super effective searches.

Zombies are terrifying former humans that want to eat your brain and/or transform you into a zombie (their exact motivations are unclear).

ZomBool is a 'choose-your-own-path' video game created by a Dal librarian to help you learn how to survive the zombie apocalypse (maybe) with the help of search strategies and Boolean operators (PC or Mac).
