When searching the database think about the different keywords and vocabulary associated with your topic and try MULTIPLE searches and databases
Keep your searches SIMPLE to start; the MORE search terms in your search the FEWER results you'll get
Use PHRASE searching when searching for multi-word terms to improve your results. This involves putting your search words in quotation marks when you search so the database searches for the terms together as a phrase. EXAMPLES:
"girl with ermine"
"War of 1812"
LIMIT your results to specific time periods and dates using the FILTERS, LIMITERS, and ADVANCED SEARCH features
