  • In a thesaurus, exploding retrieves all documents containing the selected term, as well as any of its first level of narrower terms.
  • If a plus sign (+) appears next to a narrower or related term, there are narrower terms below it.
  • When you select Major Concept for a term, you create a search query that finds only records for which the subject heading is a major point of the article.
