There are many ways to narrow a search, both on your search screen AND after you have a results list.

The video linked below illustrates several ways of narrowing a search.

Here are some of the more popular ways to narrow:

  • to Full-text articles only
  • by Date (currency is important for many topics)
  • Source type (examples: journals; newspaper; magazines)
  • Geography (example: United States)
  • 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).
