Advanced Search Strategies

Tips for comprehensive searching:

  • Try the same search terms in multiple databases. Because different databases contain different collections of journals, you'll often find different results when you do the same search in (for example) EBSCOhost's CINAHL and PubMed, or ProQuest Nursing & Allied Health and Science Direct's Health & Life Science Collection. 
  • EBSCOhost is a publisher the Alverno College Library subscribes to for access to multiple databases like CINAHL and Academic Search Premiere. To search multiple EBSCOhost databases at once, select "Choose Databases" above the search bar and check off any databases that seem relevant to you that appear in the popup. Searching in too many places can muddy your search results, so use this feature sparingly.
