Quick Search Tips

- Gather keywords when you perform background research

- Search and browse through registries, indexes and controlled vocabulary resources like the CAS Registry via SciFinder or MESH.

- Use both keywords and index terms when searching

- Use Boolean operators to broaden (OR) or narrow (AND, NOT) your search

- Use wildcards to truncate search terms (often *) in order to capture search results with variations on a word stem (e.g. biomechanic*)

- Quickly review the "Help" resources for the database you are searching
