Article searching tips

When searching the preceding databases, use these tips for better results:

  • Use wildcard characters:  If searching for economic conditions, type the word econ* with an astericks. That will return economies, economic, economist and any other word that starts with [e c o n].
  • Use quotes:  When searching for two words, quotes will search for the words when they're next to each other.  Thomas Jefferson will return articles with Thomas Payne and Jefferson Starship.  But when "Thomas Jefferson" is searched, only those articles with his name will be returned.
