Overview

    • The key to being a savvy online searcher is to use common search techniques that you can apply to almost any database, including article databases, online catalogs and even commercial search engines.
  • This is important because searching library databases is a bit different from searching Google.

  • The techniques described in this section will enable you to quickly retrieve relevant information from the thousands of records in a database.

  • When you search a database and do not get the results you expect, Ask Us for advice.  Library staff are happy to help you find what you need.
