Narrowing and Broadening Searches: Tutorial

Learn how to get less results and/or more results when searching

Narrowing and Broadening Searches

Searching effectively, whether using Library resources or using Google, can be very frustrating.  Sometimes you get so many results you don't know how to find what is relevant, and sometimes you either get too few results or no results at all. 

HOWEVER--it is possible to learn how to search more effectively and to modify your search strategy to narrow your search (get less results) and/or broaden your search (get more results).

Please watch the video tutorial below, and contact the librarians if you have questions or need more assistance.
