Database Search Tips

  • Use quotation marks: When using quotation marks the exact phrase is searched. "National Museum of African American History and Culture"
  • Use AND to link terms in the database. For example: "Schindler house" AND Hollywood combines search terms so that each search result contains all of the terms.
  • Use OR to find either term; this is especially useful with synonyms. For example: "Schindler house" OR "Schindler-Chase house" combines terms so that results contain either terms.
