General Rules

  • Databases do not answer questions. Do not phrase your search as a question. 
  • Think of keywords or phrases that best describe your search.
    • For example: Ddo not write: How does the weight of a car effect fuel consumption?
  • Brainstorm search terms. Choose different terms for different results.  
    • For example: car, automobile, weight, fuel, gas, mileage, structure.
  • Use the ADVANCED Search. This allows you to focus your results.
  • Use citation tools to create a citation for your source.
    • Make sure the citation you are using from the database is the correct style. Many times databases cite in more than one citation stylE.
