Here are some search tips for all our our Proquest Databases:
The “advanced search” option allows you to by subject or just in the title or abstract of an article.
“Quotation marks” will search for an exact title match.
All words typed in the search box are joined by “AND ”
The symbol * is used as a truncation character; it will find all forms of a word.
For example, searching for gene* will find “genes”, “genetic”, “genetics”, etc.
You can also use ghe symbol ? to replace any single character, either inside the word or the right end of the word.
For example, searching for “wom?n” will find “woman” and “women.”
