Searching and Retrieval Tips
These search tips can be used in most of the library's databases. They are typical operations used across different database vendor platforms.
Use AND to retrieve items that contain both terms. This will narrow the scope of your results: beach erosion AND hurricanes
Use OR to retrieve items that contain one term or the other. This will expand the scope of your results: nor’easter OR noreaster OR northeaster
Use drop down menus to specify how to search a term: Search hurricane as a subject heading rather than by keyword to make your results more precise.
Use * as a wildcard: hurricane* will retrieve hurricane or hurricanes
Use “ ” to search terms as an exact phrase. This can help make your results more precise.
