Additional search tips that apply to all databases:
• The more words you use, the less results you’ll see. Start
general and add words to narrow down results.
• Change up your search terms! Using a variety of words can
alter your results. For instance, all of the following will bring
up a new set of results without changing the meaning:
human resource management, personnel management,
supervision of employees.
• Getting zero results? Check your spelling, that’s often the
problem!
• Have you found a perfect article and want more like it?
Look carefully for the terms that it uses and try a new
search using those terms. You’re likely to have luck finding
similar articles.
