Tips for Searching Databases

Search terms are important for good results. The computer is looking only for the words in the search box. Generally in the Basic Search mode, the computer is only looking for the search terms in: Title, Abstract and Subject Headings.

Subject Headings are listed after the magazine/journal title information. When a good article is found, look at the Subject Headings. Repeat those terms in your search to find more articles on the same subject.

1) Determine the keywords

2) Use quotation marks around any phrases (e.g., "achievement gap")

3) Look at subject terms listed in the bibliographic record 

4) Having trouble getting results? Broaden or change your search strategy
