Searching Databases

Searching the Library Databases:

Keywords can be nouns, phrases, or names of people, places, and events.

  • Parentheses 
    • Helps visualize the order of the search (kind of like order of operations in algebra)
  • Quotation marks
    • Force the search engine to search for keywords / ideas in that exact order
  • OR
    • Link synonyms or like concepts together; expand search
  • AND
    • Links key / principal ideas together; narrows search
  • NOT‚Äč
    • Excludes words from a search; narrows search
