Search Tips

Too few results?

  • Use fewer search terms, or swap out for synonyms.
  • Borrow the subject terms coming up in the sidebar.
  • Truncate keywords to get all variations of the word (e.g. "censor*" searches for censor, censored, censorship, and censors).

Too many results?

  • Be more precise (e.g. basketball instead of sports).
  • Add an additional keyword.
  • Refine your search using the facets like publication type, date range, or subject headings.
