Research Tips

Searching in Databases


  • Use the topics given as search terms in the databases
  • Terms should be 1-3 words
  • Identify related terms or synonyms
  • Refine your search using the filters within the database
  • Conduct an Advanced Search with related or sub-topics

Remember to be flexible.  If certain terms are not yielding results, try new terms.  Approach your topic using as many search strategies as you can think of.
