Tip #2: Be Specific

  • Use the most specific term or terms when searching. For example, don't use just cancer when what you really want is breast cancer
  • If keywords don't get you what you want, then use the database's controlled vocabulary (think hastag - # ) to really target the articles


This works for both databases, catalogs, and even search engines.
