Tips for Searching Article Databases

  • enter phrases in quotes ("domestic violence," "police violence")
  • use truncation/wildcard symbols to search for multiple word endings (abus* searches for abuse, abusive, abusers, abused)
  • Start with a search using your own words, and examine the results to find additional keywords for your topic. Look for subject headings and author supplied keywords which are listed in most database records. Experiment with incorporating these keywords into your searches.
