Here are ways to narrow a search in library databases, both on your search screen and after you have a results list.

  • Full-text articles only
  • Date (it is important for many topics to use recent articles)
  • Source type (journals, newspaper, or magazines)
  • Geography (United States, India, etc.)
  • Add another term or two in the additional search boxes. For example, if you were searching for "bipolar disorder," try adding additional terms like: treatment; teenagers; etc.
