When searching for:
* Books/Monographs - try the Library Catalog first.
* Newspaper Articles - try the Newspaper Databases
* Journal Articles - try the Databases.
* A specific Journal or a specific Newspaper - try the "Journal/Newspaper Title" field in the Advanced Search screen, but use this only when you know the EXACT title of the newspaper or journal you wish to search for.
Make sense? If not - we're always here to help.
Use AND, OR or NOT to narrow or broaden your search.
ie. Canada AND Manitoba (this gives you only results that have both words somewhere in the record = FEWER results)
Canada OR Manitoba (this gives you results that have either of your search terms = MORE results)
Canada NOT Manitoba (this gives results that have the first word but not the second word, anywhere in the record = FEWER results)
"Advanced Search" is useful when combining search terms, or performing complex searches.
Still unsure? We'd be happy to help!
