Basic Search Tips for Most Databases & Library Catalog

Find more (broaden your results) with OR and wildcards:
     cat or cats   (finds either
term)
     cat
or cats or feline*   (finds cat, cats, feline, or felines)   

Find less (narrow your results) with AND:
     dogs and obedience training   (finds both terms)

Find less with NOT:
     toys not poodles   (excludes records that mention poodles)

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*)
