Advanced Search Help Sheet Guided Style Search Creating an Advanced Search 1. In the first Find field, enter a keyword. 2. Choose the search field from the drop-down list (for example, search in only the Subject Terms field of the citation). 3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the second set of Find fields. 4. Select a Boolean operator (AND, OR, NOT) to combine the two Find field entries. 5. You can enter another Boolean operator, keyword, and search field in the third set of boxes. 6. Use Limiters to narrow your search: � Full Text � limits search results to full text articles. � Publication � limits search results to articles from a specific title. 7. Use Expanders to broaden your search: � Apply additional terms to query - expands results to include synonyms and plurals. � Also search within the full text of the articles - expands search results by finding your term(s) within the full text of the articles. � Automatically "And" search terms � expands results by applying the AND operator between terms, e.g., typing space shuttle would give results for space and shuttle. 8. Click the Search button. A Result List is displayed. Searching Techniques � Booleans (AND, OR, NOT) can be used to broaden or narrow your search. � The Wildcard (?) can be used to replace any character. Enter ne?t to find results containing neat, nest or next. � Truncation (*) will find all forms of a word. Enter comput* to find results containing computer and computing. � The Near (N) operator will find search terms within x words of one another, regardless of order. Enter tax N5 reform to find results that would match tax reform as well as reform of the tax code. � The Within (W) operator will find search terms within x words of one another, in the order in which you entered them. Enter tax W8 reform to find results that match tax reform or tax without the ability to reform, but do not match reform of the tax code.
