Basics of Searching
Hawaii Voyager and the journal literature databases can all be searched using keywords that describe your topic, such as behavior AND honeybees
Search by keyword phrases by enclosing the phrases in quotes, example: "analytical chemistry" keyword search
You can find terms to refine your search by clicking on a record and identifying relevant subject headings that are attached to the record.
Using Index terms (or metadata) to refine your search
You can use Boolean logic (AND, OR, ANDNOT) to increase or decrease the number of records you will retrieve in a search.
Use truncation symbols to easily broaden a search on a particular term, such as ? in Hawaii Voyager, or *in many of the databases. Some databases will automatically stem a search term so that truncation symbols are unnecessary.
Combining Searches or Terms
Look for ways to filter your searches such as using Journal Title Begins With to search for a particular journal in Hawaii Voyager or using Title Begins With to search, a book title.
