Tips for Using Databases

  1. Select two to three keywords from your research question.
  2. Utilize Boolean Operators AND, OR, and NOT to connect your keywords.
  3. Narrow your search results using database limits, such as publication date, source type, and subject terms.
  4. Evaluate your search results. Too many? Add more specific keywords and/or database limits. Too few? Use broader or fewer keywords. You can also try searching in another database.
  5. Repeat. Research is a cycle; you will likely need to move through these steps more than once to find sources.
