Search Tips

Library databases aren't like Google: they are very literal.  You must search for the exact keywords authors have used.

Combine keywords using Boolean Operators (AND and OR), and use the asterisk * to find all word forms.

tutoring AND achievement Finds articles that use BOTH keywords
junior high OR middle school Finds articles that use EITHER of the similar keywords
plagiar* (shift+8) Finds all endings of the word: plagiarize, plagiarism, etc.

Search Limits

Look for search limits on the Advanced Search page in the database.
