Tips & Tricks

Tips & Tricks

  • When searching databases, use AND, OR, and parentheses to focus your search.
  • The asterisk * symbol will search for all variations of a word. For example: basket* will search for baskets and basketry. Using quotes will search for a phrase.
  • Combine synonyms with OR and put them inside parentheses, like this:
(U2 OR "The Edge") AND ("achtung baby" OR "joshua tree")
