The best way to find articles would be to use the Summon search tool, which can be found on the library's homepage. Summon brings up many different results from all of our various databases, but not everything. If you would like search on a more specific topic, consider searching directly in one of our subject-specific databases.
Break down your search into concepts. Develop a list of synonyms.
EXAMPLE: counseling AND family
Other terms for counseling could be therapy, psychotherapy, or treatment.
Combining different terms gives you different terms.
Clearly define your search statement. Trouble spots to look out for:
Too Broad - EXAMPLE: counseling
Too Narrow - EXAMPLE: counseling AND marriage AND divorce
[NOTE: To search a phrase use quotes]
