Search Tips

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:  "saturated fats" "acid reflux"
  • Use truncation symbols to search for alternate word endings: In most databases, entering athlet* searches for athletic, athletics, athlete, and athletes.
  • If one term doesn't work, try a few others. Experiment with different vocabulary related to your topic.
