19 Searching proprietary resources Online search engines or browsers vary from source to source. Some common search options are: title, author, phrase, subject heading or controlled language, truncation, peer-reviewed, browsing and keyword. Many search engines even those like Google which we think we are familiar with offer search options that can refine your search and save you time once you become familiar with them. Always ask for help if you are uncertain at any point in the search process. 19
