Search Tips

  • Keep a running list of potential search terms in an index card.
  • Always note the subjects listed in the subjects field below the articles in the results lists.  Add these to your index card.
  • Add an asterisk to a root word like Buddhis* - it will search for Buddhism, Buddhist, Buddhists all at the same time
  • Change the drop-down menu next to the search box to Abstract, Subject, or Geographic location. These are much more specific than Keyword and this strategy will save you time!
  • If there are references at the end of a great article, use those references to further your research.
  • Never limit your search to full-text- the Link to Full Text option often sends you to the article you want (in a different database).
  • If the full-text of an article you want is unavailable, request it via Interlibrary Loan.
  • The citation for an article is often provided by the database, but always compare it to examples provided by another source like Purdue's OWL.
