Searching Tips

tip picture 


• OneSearch will search all of the terms you enter in the search box as if they are connected with the word AND. For example, if you type in: communication language children, your results will contain all three terms. If you would like to combine your terms in other ways, using OR or NOT, use the advanced search. 

• Enclose your search terms with "quotation marks" to improve the relevancy of your search. For example, typing "social media" will return articles with that exact phrase.

• To search for books and DVDs in the SRC library collection, limit your search results by selecting "Catalog Only" in the Refine Search column (left side on the results page).

• To find scholarly journal articles, filter your search results by selecting "Peer Reviewed" in the Refine Search column (left side on the results page).
