Tricks for Database Searching

  • Truncation: use the * symbol to get various words that may begin the same. Examples: teen*, identit*, advertis*
  • Wild card: for similar words where a letter may be different. Example: searching "wom?n" will return results with woman and women.
  • Quotation marks: use to find an exact phrase, like "social media" or "interpersonal communication".

Use Boolean Operators

  • AND: find BOTH terms. Only articles with both terms will be returned.
  • OR: find one or the other. This is useful for finding similar terms. Ex: young adult OR teen
  • Use AND and OR to create more specific searches.
    • (adolescent OR teen* OR "young adult") AND "social media"

Use Subject Headings
