Advanced Search Strategies to Find the Right Sources Online

Are you getting 40,000 results every time you search?  (Or just four?)  Are you worried about missing a key paper?  We can help!

Even if you already know how to search, there are advanced strategies that can save you time and help you make sure you're finding the most relevant sources.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to:

  • Build a search string to maximize relevant results.  
  • Find databases you may not have tried. 
  • Use one good source to find many others.

This workshop will be recorded. A link to the recording will be emailed to all registrants following the event.
