Tips for Searching Catalogs and Databases

In addition to the search techniques covered in the "Doing Reserach Tutorial" above, the following techniques can improve your success with online searching, whether you're searching a catalog for books or a database for articles:

  • Enter phrases in quotes:  "fast food, "hydrogenated oil," "trans fats"
  • Use truncation symbols to search for alternate word endings: In most databases, entering psychol* searches for psychology, psychological and psychologists
  • If one term doesn't work, try a few others. Experiment with different vocabulary related to your topic. Brainstorm ideas for relevant keywords and use background sources such as wikipedia and encyclopedias for suggestions.
