Not every database functions in the same way as the others. When you move from one database to another, you may need to make small changes to your search strategy to account for these differences.
The good news is that each database has extensive help files that can be a treasure trove of helpful information. Look in the top right-hand corner for a link that is either a question mark or says "help". You can view information and tutorials about how to most effectively search in that resource.
Many databases will also have a YouTube channel where you may be able to watch brief video tutorials about searching.
If you don't find the answer to your question in the help files, you can always reach out to the Library for assistance! Use the Email Me link on the left side of the screen to send us a message.
