Tips & Tricks for Using Databases

  • Databases don't respond to sentences, so choose keywords and synonyms when you are searching.
  • Make sure your keyword is spelled correctly, unlike Google, databases will not try to correct your spelling.
  • Most databases will allow you to combine two or more keywords in a search using AND, OR, NOT, which will allow you to narrow or broaden your search.
  • Use limiters like publication type, date, lexile level, Full Text if you find too many options.
  • UCLA Library has a great guide for choosing and using databases, click HERE for the link.

Even though the libraries are closed right now, you can access resources 24/7 using your Carnegie Library (CLP) or Allegheny County (ACLA) library card.  You can check if your account is active by clicking on this link.  If you do not have a library card that same link will allow you to sign up for an immediate virtual library card.
