Search Tips

Below are some tips and tricks for searching in the libraries' databases. Each database has unique features, but these will work in most databases (but NOT Smart Search).

  • Enclose the title of the work in quotation marks. This lets the database know you want those words to appear in that exact order.
    • "From Russia with Love"
    • "The Lonely Londoners"
  • If you want to begin with a very broad search just include the title and author's name. This will probably give you books and articles that address many different aspects of the work.
    • "Oranges are Not the Only Fruit" Winterson
    • "Last Orders" Graham Swift
  • To focus your search, add additional keywords related to your topic:
    • Character Names
    • Themes: friendship, masculinity, class
    • Movements,Techniques, or Critical Lenses: realism, feminism, semiotics, allegory, postcolonial
