How to Search Effectively
- Search by keyword:
voting, "civic engagement"
or by entering a research question:
How many college students volunteer?
- Use quotes for phrase searches; use the minus sign to remove items from results:
"social network" -"social media"
- A Boolean "and" is inferred for multiple search terms.
- Stemming is automatic; do not use an asterisk.
- Search is not case-sensitive.
