LibrarySearch Tips

Looking for articles?

  • Refine your search by selecting Resource Type, then Articles on the right-hand side of the page

Finding too much?

  • Put “Quotation Marks Around Your Search" to search for exact phrases
  • For example: "Calgary Stampede"

Finding too little?

  • Use OR between your ideas to search for EITHER term (OR must be in capitals)
  • Put * after the root of a word to look for multiple endings
  • For example: (argu* OR debat*)

For better searching, think of multiple ways to describe your topic
