Q. I'm having trouble finding articles on my topic.

Answer

If you're having trouble finding articles on your topic, try this:

  • In general, search using one or two nouns, combined by AND or OR.
  • If you find too much information, take out a word. If you don't find enough, add one.
  • Use an asterisk (*) to search for variations on a word. For example, searching for student* will bring up records on student and students.
  • Go to Research step-by-step 3) Find books and articles via databases
  • If you're still having trouble finding what you need, please ask a librarian for assistance.
