A Few Search Tips
While you won't need to research additional articles as you write your critical analysis for this course, you may find that you'd like to try a few searches to see what resources the library has available on a certain subject. To do that, you can use the Multi-Search, which is the search box right on the library home page. It is our primary search engine, and you can use it to find scholarly articles, book, eBooks, newspaper articles, dissertations and theses, book reviews, and more!
The Multi-Search, like most of the library's databases, is best searched using keywords rather than long sentences or phrases. You can combine the keywords in various ways to create different searches, using strategies like Boolean operators, and quotation marks for phrase searching. Here are some tips to help you combine your keywords and create effective searches.
