Database Search Tips
· It is crucial to CHOOSE the right database for your task.
· COMBINE keywords and/or subject terms using Boolean logic for fewer, more relevant results.
· USE a database's sorting features for better results.
· Databases may cover specific topics and/or time periods – PAY ATTENTION!
· Use the HELP screens to learn the characteristics of a specific database and improve your searching skills.
· Don’t forget to CITE your sources! Most databases will have a “citation tools” feature – use it!
