Quick Tips

  1. You want a manageable number of search results, between 20 and 150. You want to find the best sources, not just some sources that happen to rise to the top.
  2. Search in individual databases as well as in the Library Search. Use the A-Z Database list to find databases by subject.
  3. Get rid of unnecessary words and use the proper terminology for the subject area.
  4. Use subject searches to help eliminate irrelevant results.
  5. Use AND, OR, or NOT to connect ideas together.
  6. Use * at the end of the term to find results with words that start with those letters. Use quotation marks around multiple words to pull results that use the words only in that adjacent order.
  7. Specify 'Full text" or "Peer reviewed" and other limiters if needed.
