Finding Articles

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: teenager AND education

Other terms for teenager could be adolescent, teen, or "young adult."
Combining different terms gives you different terms.


Clearly define your search statement. Trouble spots to look out for:

Too Broad - EXAMPLE: adolescent

  • Solution: Add another concept to your topic which will narrow your search and make it more focused.
    EXAMPLE: adolescent AND bullying

Too Narrow - EXAMPLE: adolescent AND bullying AND "high school"

[NOTE: To search a phrase use quotes]

  • Solution: Remove one secondary concept from your search string.
    EXAMPLE: adolescent AND bullying AND "high school"
