  • Searching for an exact phrase-use "" quotation marks

  • Use the asterik (*) to search for the root word and any ending e.g., rac* retrieves  race, racial; parent* retrieves parenting, parents, parental, etc.

  • Look at the subject headings on the full record for an on-target item-these can help you generate new keywords, concepts, etc.

  • Finding too many articles on a topic?  Try searching for your keywords in the Title field of the item record.

  • Found an excellent article on your research question?  Make sure you check the references to find more relevant articles...citation chaining!
