Keyword Search Tips

Too many hits? Limit by subject - usually there is a list of subject links on one side of the screen. 

The same tricks to help you find books in the catalog, will help you find articles

  • connect synonyms with the word or to get more results

 (heart or cardiac)

  • put quotes around phrases "medical device"
  • truncate terms to get all possible endings

surg*  (finds surgery, surgeries, surgeon, surgical, etc.)

  • combine keywords or phrases with the word and to help limit and focus your results:

 (orthopedic or orthopaedic) and surg*

  • if your first search isn't great, revise it until you get what you want!
