Begin by entering a word or phrase into the search field. Then select a subject area or specific databases to search. The subject areas are selected from the pull down menu right below the search field and include the following four broad categories; Arts & Humanities, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, and Technology.
If you are interested in searching in specific databases, select the subject area and then click on the 'Select Specific Databases' link to the right of the pull-down menu. This enables you to see exactly what databases are available to make specific selections by checking off the relevant databases. To learn more about these features, see Search Areas & Databases.
You can further limit your search using the Date Range pull-down.
Searching is not case sensitive, so you don't need to use capital letters. Multiple words entered into the search field (e.g., health nutrition), will be treated as a phrase. To find all words entered in the search field, you must separate words with AND. To find any words entered in the search field, you must separate words with OR. To learn more about search syntax, see Boolean Operators, Proximity Search, Wildcard Symbols, and Fielded Search.After you enter in your search term(s) and select the subject area or databases to search, click on the 'Search' button to view your results.
