Database Search Tips

  • Use AND to combine your concepts, e.g., women and substance abuse
  • Use OR to combine synonyms, related terms, e.g., domestic violence or family violence
  • Use the * (asterik)  to search for the root word and any ending, e.g., parent* will retrieve parent, parents, parenthood, parenting.
  • Look at the subject headings on the full record for an item-these can help you generate new keywords, concepts, etc.
