Tips & Special Features:

This database begins in a "Basic Search" mode to let you search by keyword. Below the search box you will see a phrase saying "Search for words in" followed by three options: Subject, Keyword, and Entire Document.

An "Advanced Search" option also exists at the top of the database page. Clicking it produces a new search page with more options yet. You can search multiple fields (e.g. Document Title, Author, Subject) simultaneously.

Search results are grouped below different tabs near the top of the page: Magazines, Academic Journals, Books, News, Multimedia.

You can alter the order of search results by clicking the "Sort By" menu to switch from Publication Date (the default setting) to Relevance (which attempts to calculate, based on word proximity and frequency in matching documents, and display the most relevant matches).

If you receive a large number of search results, you can search further "within these results" by typing additional keywords into the search box above and to the left of search results.
