Search tips

- Only input one main concept per search line or search box
Use the Advanced Search option, and type one main concept in each search box, like you see in these two examples...

- Change the search terms

The search engine or database will look for *exactly* the term you type in. So try a different term to see different results. On the first search, try "Tyler the Creator". On a second search, try the artist's real name "Tyler Gregory Okonma". On a third search, try the name of the group that he co-founded "Odd Future". On a fourth search, try the genre associated with him, "alternative hip hop". See what results are the best for you!

- Too many results? Add another focusing search term, joined to the other search boxes with "AND"

Look at the difference between this search...

...and this one...

- Not enough results? Change the search terms, or try them with "OR"

Like in this example...

- Can't find anything after 30 minutes of searching? Then...

  1. Try each of the steps listed above in purple. If that doesn't work...
  2. Close the database, open a different database, and see what you can find there. If you search for 20-30 minutes and find nothing in the second database, then...
  3. Contact a librarian to ask for help!
