Tips for searching

  • Use a thesaurus to find synonyms (this will give you more options when searching)
  • Use advance search features (helps to clearly outline your search)
  • Searches can be conducted by selecting either KEYWORD or SUBJECT; here you will simply type in the words you think of.
  • Use the "Controlled Vocabulary" feature (often at the top of the database page), usually labeled: thesaurus, dictionary, vocabulary, subject heading, etc.
  • If you search for more than 30 minutes, ask a librarian for help
