  • Tips for Database Searching

    • Keep your initial search simple—set the limit for “Full Text” right away, but save other limits (such as date ranges, number of pages, peer-reviewed, etc.) until you see the results list.

    • Look for common database tools (suggested subject headings, abstracts, citation help, emailing and save options) on the edges of the page, often in a color bar above the search boxes or in a separate frame on the right or left of your results list.
