Research Tips

  • Use Noodletools to keep track of your research and generate citations.
  • When searching in databases, frame your search with keywords, not full sentences or questions. Databases aren't Google, and queries need to be structured correctly in order to get the best results.
  • Too many results? Try narrowing your search by such parameters as date of publication and type of publication.
  • Not enough results? Try rethinking your question. Brainstorm lists of words and phrases that describe your question, and try different combinations of search terms.
  • Advanced Search allows you more flexibility in terms of combining distinct search terms.
  • Put exact phrases in quotes.
