Search strategies

Hi everyone, I thought it might be helpful to post a picture of the notes I took when we were discussing search strategies this week: Boolean searching (AND, OR, NOT), truncation (usually *), phrase searching (using quotes), and nesting (using parentheses). Hope this helps as you search for sources for your bibliographies.

Have a great Spring Break! I’ll see you on April 6th in the upstairs classroom (Rm A540).
