Database Tips:

  • Use a variety of words or phrases to describe what you're looking for, but keep it simple, and don't be afraid to do multiple searches.
  • Find a few articles that work, and look for new words/phrases to describe what you're looking for, and search again using those new phrases or words.
  • Less is more -- try to get less than 60 results per search.
  • Use the "refine results" in the left hand column to narrow down your results.
