15 Searching Tips There are a number of helpful tips and hints you can use to improve your search results. For example, you can use Boolean operators to link terms together; limit the search to a specific title; and /or restrict the search to a particular date range. Note: Stop words are commonly used words such as articles, pronouns, and prepositions. These words are not indexed for searching in the database. For example, 'the', 'for', and 'of' are stop words. When a stop word is used in a query, any single word or no word is retrieved in place of the stop word. When searching strings that contain stop words or a Boolean operator, it is necessary to use quotation marks.

16 Searching Tips Boolean Operators Sometimes a search can be overly general (results equal too many hits) or overly specific (results equal too few hits). To fine tune your search, you can use AND, OR, and NOT operators to link your search words together. These operators will help you narrow or broaden your search to better express the terms you are looking for and to retrieve the exact information you need quickly.

17 Searching Tips USING THE "AND" OPERATOR: If you have a search term that is too general, you can append several terms together using "AND". By stringing key terms together, you can further define your search and reduce the number of results. Note: Unless you define a specific search field, the result list will contain references where all your search terms are located in either the citation, full display or full text. For example, type emergency preparedness AND disaster to find results that refer to both high risk and injury.

18 Searching Tips USING THE "OR" OPERATOR: In order to broaden a search, you can link terms together by using the "OR" operator. By using "OR" to link your terms together you can find documents on many topics. Linked by this operator, your words are searched simultaneously and independently of each other. As an example, search emergency preparedness AND disaster OR planning to find results that contain either the terms "emergency preparedness" and "disaster", or the term "planning".

19 Searching Tips USING THE "NOT" OPERATOR: In order to narrow a search, you can link words together by using the "NOT" operator. This operator will help you to filter out specific topics you do not wish included as part of your search. Type: emergency preparedness AND disaster NOT planning to find results that contain the terms "high risk" or "injury", but not the term "trauma". To further define your results, type: emergency preparedness AND disaster AND planning to constrict the search to include all terms linked by the "AND" operator. Searching Tips." EBSCO Help.
