Database Search Tips

Developing a search query can be a challenge, but please consider these tips:

  • Check out a database's Thesaurus to find appropriate keywords for the item for which you are looking. 
  • A longer search query helps databases retrieve more specific resources
  • Using "OR" between terms will retrieve more results
  • Using "AND" between terms will retrieve less results
