There are many ways of making your database and web searches more precise (so you get better results).

  1. Using Boolean Operators
  2. Using Limiters for things like date, publication type, language, scholarliness
  3. Using "official" subject terms rather than natural language

If you need help with a specific search, please chat with a librarian for more help.
