Using these "smart searching" tricks will help you get better results:
• Narrow the search by using AND
Example: organization and diversity management
Result: By using AND, you are telling the database to only show results that contain both "Organization" and "Diversity Managment"
• Broaden the search by using OR
Example: organization and diversity management or affirmative action
Result: By using OR, you are telling the database to show results that use the term "Diversity Management" or the term "Affirmative Action"
• Broaden the search by using an asterisk to search for different word endings
Example: organization* and change
Result: This search will find any word beginning with "organization," including organization, organizations, and organizational
Use a Basic Search to find simple terms.
You may also limit your results:
Use Advanced Search to limit your search results:
For example, for articles on the topic depression you will get thousands of results. Better to do an advance search and limit your search to depression as a subject and add more terms to focus the results.
