Search Tips

  • use synonyms and truncation to find all the ways your topic is expressed--databases are very literal
  • combine multiple concepts using AND / OR for best results

sample topic:   Chaucer's construction of marriage

(Chaucer OR "Franklin's Tale" OR "Wife of Bath's Tale") - synonymous concepts

AND (marriage OR wyf* OR wife* OR housebonde OR husband OR [other specific examples]) - truncation
