Basic Search Strategies

Search by keywords and small phrases.

Maximize your keyword searches with Boolean searching. What's Boolean?

  • And
  • Or
  • Not

Use quotation marks to search for whole phrases. 

Use the database’s built in limiting features. Some databases have a filter for full-text or scholarly journals. 

Consider truncation. The symbol used is usually *. Typing in creat* will result in results containing: create, creating, creators, creation, creatures, etc. 

Try using the database’s subject terms. Those are listed in the database’s thesaurus, or they may be listed near the article abstract.
