Searching Tips

You can use these searching tips for your other classes too.

  • Article databases and the catalog don't recognize phrase searching, so break your topic into the main keywords or concepts.  For example, if your topic is the effect of clear cutting on virgin forests, don't type "the effect of clear cutting of a virgin forest" in the search box.  Instead, type in "'clear cutting" AND "virgin forest" or something similarly structured.
     
  • When you find a good article, look at the footnotes or endnotes to see what articles the author read--you might find a few good ones that you can use.  See the box below for how to find articles when you have a citation. 
     
  • Use truncation to expand your search results, for example, if you type in "environ*" it will capture environment, environmental, etc.  Some databases do this automatically, but many do not. 
     
  • Click on linked author names, subject headings, or any other descriptive terms in book and article descriptions.
