Basic Search Tips for Most Databases & Library Catalog

Find more (broaden your results) with OR and wildcards:
     addict or addicted or addiction   (finds
any of the terms)
     addict*   (finds addict, addicts, addicting, addicted, etc.)   

Find less (narrow your results) with AND:
     social workers and burnout   (finds both terms)

Find less with NOT:
     twelve step* not alcohol*   (excludes records that mention alcohol, alcoholism, etc.)

Find less by selecting limiters (peer-reviewed, date, publication type, etc.)
Use quotation marks for an "exact phrase"

For OneSearch:
  • natural language works well
  • CAPS are required for AND and OR
  • use parentheses to nest terms when using both AND and OR
  • select filters (limiters) on results screen
Sample searches for OneSearch:

     how body image affects women
     "body image" AND women
     "body image" AND (women OR girls)
     (prejudic* OR discriminat*) AND (islam* OR muslim*)
