Advanced Searching and Limits

Advanced Searching/Search Builder

The advanced search/search builder can be particularly useful in several instances - e.g.,:

  • when you know the article you are looking for (e.g., you know the author and article title)
  • when you want to limit your search terms to the title & abstract (especially when your general keyword search is bring back too many and/or less relevant results)
