Searching Tips

  • Use the Advanced Search
  • Use AND to combine keywords and phrases when searching.
  • Use quotation marks to search for exact phrases
  • Don't limit yourself to just one database or one set of search results.
  • When searching for books, use broader terms than when searching for articles.
  • Use the keyboard shortcut Control+F (or Command+F on the Mac) to find a word somewhere on a page. (This works for web pages, PDFs, and Word documents!)
  • Ask a librarian if you have questions!
