Database Searching Tips

Database searching can be refined to provide better results

When using search terms:

1 - Try placing phrases in quotation marks (").
      ex. search "radical marketing" instead of just typing in radical

2 - Search similar or related words.
      ex. "Conflict Resolution"
            "Dealing with Conflicts" 

3 - Combine searches
      ex.  "Conflict Resolutions" AND Managers

4 - Search for alternative word endings using an asterisk (*) at the end of
     the word root.  ex. manufactur* will retrieve manufacture,
      manufactures, manufacturing, manufactured, etc.

5 - Break down topics. ex. Topic: Motivating Different Generations of
      Employees.  Search -  "Employee Motivation" AND "Generation Y" 
                                        "Incentives AND "Baby Boomers"  

6 - Always check your spelling. Some databases do this automatically. Others do not.  If your search words result in zero hits, incorrect spelling may be the cause.
