Database searching tips

When searching in databases, try these handy tips for better results:

  • use wildcard characters.  If searching for information about children, type the word child* with an astericks. That will return children, childhood and any other word that starts with child.
  • use quotes.  When searching for a phrase, quotes will search for the words when they're next to each other.  
  • use Boolean phrasing ("and," "or," "not"). "And" and "not" will narrow your search, but "or" will broaden it.
