Search Tips & Strategies

Scholarly articles can be found in the LibSearch catalogue on the library website or the library's databasesThe first step is to build a search statement with keywords, Boolean operators, and fields:


  • Use concrete and neutral words.
  • NEVER type more the 1-2 terms in a search box. Go to the Advanced Search page to separate keywords into multiple boxes.
  • If you are not finding what you need, try to change or add keywords.
  • Use limiters on the left-hand or right-hand side of the screen to refine results.
  • Choose a field from the drop-down menu next to the search box to narrow results. 
  • Use Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT) and truncation (*) to expand and narrow results.
