Google is awesome, but using scholarly databases can help us to quickly find desired information with more focused results and less concern about information reliability. There are many ways you can get better results in databases (filters, keywords, truncation, etc.), but a key thing to know is that many scholarly databases look for your EXACT KEYWORDS. See the box below on Brainstorming so you can help the scholarly databases find your EXACT KEYWORDS by giving the database more words that mean the same thing!
Brainstorming other keywords that mean the same thing tends to be the key if you are retrieving too few results. Try using synonyms or variant forms of the same word (singular or plural forms) connected with the word or to have the database pick up word A or word B or word C. A couple of examples are below, or see the worksheet below for help:
When in a webpage, word document, or PDF document, if you do not see the key text you are looking for, click on CTRL F. This will bring up a find box that allows you to type in a keyword of interest, and it will jump you to that keyword in the text. See the excellent video tutorial linked below on using CTRL F to find keywords.
