Search Tips

When searching databases, use AND, OR, quotation marks, asterisks and parentheses. 

Combine search terms with AND.  Combine synonyms with OR.

"Quotation Marks" - used for phrases like "plastic surgery." 

Asterisk * - placed before or at the end to find all variations of a word.  For example, *ethics will bring back bioethics.  *ethic* might bring back unethical.

# or ? - helps when you know of different ways to spell a word - for example British, American or slang way to spell may be different and you want to keep your search open.  Grey vs gray or colour vs color.
