Here's a strategy for finding articles for the PHL 101 research assignment. Begin your search in the Religion & Philosophy Collection database.
Enter a unique term in each search box. In most cases, you will enter only one precise term in each search box. Click the down arrow beside Select a Field and choose All Text.
As you enter the terms in the search boxes, make a note of any related terms that appear in the drop-down list of suggested searches. Can you think of other search terms?
Study your search results. Try different search terms and add or remove terms until you find the terms that produce the most relevant results.
Click on the down arrow beside Select a Field and choose Subject Terms. Note whether selecting Subject Terms improves or excessively limits your search. Choose either ALL TEXT or SSUBJECT TERMS accordingly.
Still not finding what you need? Enter your best search terms together in the top search box. It is likely that the database's SmartText Searching feature will be activated.
