Search Tips

Yes, you can google, but try these strategies to improve your search skills:
  • Use Advanced Search with AND, OR, NOT (Boolean searching)
  • “  “ (quotation marks) will narrow search to ONLY words contained within quotation marks         
  • For primary sources, intermingle search terms with letters, memoirs, oral history, diaries, finding aid
  • Use a variety of search terms appropriate for the time period you are researching
  • Different databases use varied terminology
  • Use left or right side limiters in databases to broaden or narrow search
  • Use bibliographies for citation chasing
