General Search Tips

Be specific for best results, e.g., photography during the civil war, not just civil war. 

Refining your search: After entering a search, use the facets on the left to narrow the results
  • target only peer-reviewed articles 
  • show only items with Full Text available online 
  • include newspaper articles, books, journal articles, and more
  • limit your results by content type, discipline, date, subject terms, language, or library location.

Finding Career Information in OneSearch

To include or exclude concepts, ideas and topics in your search, use the operators AND, OR and NOT:

  • career development planning
  • career planning
  • careers
  • education
  • employment
  • higher education
  • job hunting
  • salary
  • training
  • wages

Using two or more of these concepts, ideas and topics with AND will yield more specific results:

  • careers AND employment
  • careers AND salaries OR wages
  • higher education AND salary
  • training AND development
  • wages AND education

Of course, you can always add standard limiters such as:

  • "United States"
  • internship

Remember to use "quotation marks" around phrases for more specific results.
