General Search Tips

Remember the following when searching in any database:

  • Always choose "Advanced Search"
  • Sort Keywords by date or relevance
  • Use Boolean Operators "AND" to narrow your results, "NOT" to limit your results and "OR" to broaden your results
  • Use quotation marks around phrases and names to keep the words in order in your search results
  • Use thier print button to print only the article
  • Stay calm and don't panic! If your search does not give you the results you need, try a different keyword or subject heading.
