Keyword Search Tips

Keyword searching (generally) works best for finding articles on a topic

If you get too many results, try limiting to a particular 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

 (cybersecurity  or cyber security)

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

 wifi and bluetooth

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

produc*  (finds produce, produces, product, production, etc.)

Put it all together:

(cybersecurity or "cyber security") and wifi

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