    Standard Search Techniques

    Each database's interface looks a little different. But there are similar search techniques you can use:

    • Enclose phrases in quotation marks: "indigenous scholarship"
    • Use * (or sometimes ! or ?) to truncate words: hawaii* searches for hawaii, hawaiian, hawaiians
    • Re-sort search results if needed: by Relevance, or Most Recent First.
    • Note Export, E-Mail or Print features, and Previous Search buttons. 

    Can't Find It Online?

    If the index you're using doesn't seem to have a link to full text, try these steps:

    • Look for the Find It box. Clicking on that will launch a search through all of our online content.
    • If it's still not found online, check our library to see if we have a paper subscription to the journal. Search Hawaii Voyager, and use the "Journal Title Begins With" search option.
    • If all of that fails, and if you have time, ask us to get a copy of it for you from another library.
