General Search Tips for Online Subscription Databases
Limit results to Full Text.
Make sure that all the results are items you can access by limiting results to Full Textresults only. Databases often include a mix of full text items and abstracts/synopses of items. Selecting Full Text helps prevent frustration.
Look for search terms in article titles.
Database searches generally default to keyword. Using the drop-down list to the right of the search bar, look for title, document title, orcomparable term such asnewspaper Headline.
Look for filters / limiters on your results page, such as SubjectandSource types. This will help ensure you get only the results that you want and will make sure you don't have to wade through as many results.
Use AND / OR operators (also known as Boolean operators).
Use ANDin your search when there are words that all need to be in your search results.
Use OR when there are two words that can be used interchangeably, but at least one of them needs to be present in your results.
Use NOTwhen you want to exclude a word from your search.
