For more help with searching, check out the videos and tutorials available through the libraries.
This kind of searching is what most people do -- you simply enter a word(s) or a phrase and hope that relevant articles will turn up. Most of the time you will find a few articles that are of interest to you, at least to browse. We often call this type of searching "quick and dirty." In case your basic search does not retrieve any articles that are of interest, or retrieves too many articles, you will need to learn about advanced search strategies that will increase the probability of obtaining helpful results.
One of the more commonly practiced advanced search strategies is Boolean searching using operators like "and" and "or".
