How Do I Search in a Database?

Our databases may each have a different look, but they can all be used in similar ways.

Be on the look out for the following features:

  • A basic search box.
  • An advanced search box.
  • Links to the full-text of the articles
  • Ways to limit your search, including by scholarly or peer-reviewed status, publication date, source type, subject heading, etc. (See red boxes below).
