Database Search Strategy Tips

Researching 

  • Put some thought into choosing your search terms and consider synonyms or alternative terms.
  • Use AND, OR, and NOT to combine or exclude search terms.
  • Check the subject terms listed within your results for additional words to search.
  • Check the database thesaurus, where available, for other search terms.
  • For some topics, you may want to repeat your search in additional databases.
  • Most databases have a help link in the upper right-hand corner. 
  • The help screens will usually explain how to enter in keywords for the best search results.
  • Take advantage of additional database features such as citation formatting and limiting to academic journals.
