Tips for Searching in Library Databases

  • Use Boolean Operators in your searches (AND, NOT, OR, etc.) to broaden or narrow a search
  • Use truncation (e.g., comput* instead of computer or computing) to include all word forms
  • Choose limiters to define time span, language, and type of resource, to filter out unwanted results
  • Look at the references for the relevant sources you find to identify other useful sources

General (Multidisciplinary) Databases


Don't Forget!

Using library databases will maximize your chances of finding useful articles for your research, but you still need to evaluate the sources you find using the CRAAP test criteria. Remember to always consider the Currency, Relevance, Authority, Accuracy, and Purpose of the articles you find on the web or via library databases. Blue check mark in a circle | 503.943.7111 or 800.841.8261 | 5000 N.
