Well-developed SEARCHING SKILLS are at the core of good research. Using effective search strategies is vital to finding relevant sources. Selecting appropriate KEYWORDS and using BOOLEAN SEARCHES will greatly improve the quality and focus of your search results, especially while using DATABASES.
This page provides links to handouts, resources and tutorials focused on SEARCHING SKILLS, including keyword and Boolean searching.
Subject and course guides are created and maintained by KU librarians and staff to provide pre-selected and focused research sources, strategies, and support to the KU community. The recommended guides will help you find the right databases and other resources for your research or course, while providing information about how to find and use our services.
Access the guides from the Get Help: Subject & Course Guides link on the KU Libraries home page. Direct link: Research Guides
