Keywords are incredibly important in your search for books, articles, websites, and other resources. Search results can only be as good as the information you put into the search bar, so think carefully about your search terms. When using catalogs and databases, avoid typing questions, but rather use words and terms that are appropriate for academics.
Keywords for Biology:
Utilize the Advanced Search feature for databases, catalogs, and search engines.
Limit the search results by date, publisher, file type, and more.
Type in multiple keywords separated by AND, OR, or NOT.
"AND" will only provide results where all of the keywords appear. "OR" will provide results where any of the keywords appear. "NOT" will exclude results that include that particular keyword.
It is also useful to utilize quotation marks around multi-word terms when you want the term to appear exactly as you type it. For instance if you searched for information about "distracted driving" placing the term in quotation marks tell the search that you only want results where those words appears together.
