Tips from the Experts
- use synonyms and truncation to find all the ways your topic is expressed--computers are very literal
- combine multiple concepts using AND / OR for best results
sample topic: women and property rights in Regency England
(woman OR women OR female) - synonyms
AND (property OR own* OR possess*) - truncation
AND (regency OR 19th century england)
