Developing Search Terms

Database Search Strategies

Search Tips:

1) Use AND, OR, NOT to connect words. AND will connect two terms, OR will bring up either term, and NOT will exclude a term.

2) Use truncation. You add an asterisk (*) to the root of the word, and the results will bring up any words with that root. For example:

 Music*

 Paint*

 Instrument*

If you click a green Find Full-Text button, one of three things can happen. 

1) It will link to the article and you're all set!

2) It will link to a website, and you will need to search for the article there

3) Simmons doesn't have access, so you'll see the second screenshot with an option to search via Google Scholar, or request from another library (Interlibrary Loan)
