Advanced Search Reminders
Use AND to combine different keywords.
- For example, minorities AND coaching
Use OR to search for any one of several words. You can do this to combine synonyms.
- For example, race OR ethnicity OR minorit*
To look for an exact phrase, use quotation marks.
- For example, “human resource management” will find that phrase exactly as it appears, with all three words, in that order.
To look for variations of a word, or to look for the singular and plural, use an asterisk (*).
- For example, if you enter a search for minor* you will find results that contain these words: minority, minorities, minor, and minors
Use parentheses to separate synonyms.
- For example, (race OR ethnicity) and coaching

Did you know that you can search multiple EBSCO databases at the same time?
To do this, click on "Choose Databases" link above the search boxes. The database in which you are seaching will already be checked (eg. Academic Search Complete).
Using the check boxes, select:
- Humanities Source
Once you've selected all the databases you would like to search, scroll down the screen and click OK.
At this point your screen will refresh and the name of your original database will be followed by "Show all." You are now searching multiple databases at once.
