Know Your Limits

Databases have many options that can help refine your search. Most database searches can be limited by these variables:

  • Publication Year
  • Language
  • Document Type
  • Publication Type
  • Document Format

These limits can help you find the exact results you need quickly!  The options for limiting your search will most likely be on the left or right side of your results screen.  If you don't see them there, look for an advanced search option.
