Search Tips

  • Keep a list of words/concepts related to your topic. It is important to use various combinations of words when searching a database. Having a list of words will make it easier to come up with different combinations.

  • Always search in more than one database. Each has a different collection of information.

  • Always start with a broad or simple search. Slowly add more search words, subject terms, or filters until you have a number of results you like (normally fewer than 100).

  • If you don't like the results you get, try another search. You may have to try several different searches before you find what you want.
