* When searching for articles, remember to connect your search terms using "and" or "or." For example, if you are looking for articles on hip-hop and blues music searach for hip-hop AND blues AND music or for hiphop AND blues AND music.
* Most databases will let you choose the type of publication you need, such as magazines, newspapers, or scholarly journals.
* Look for an advanced search option. It is often a bit more complicated, but more useful.
* Use the pdf version rather than the html if both are available.
* If you do not see a link to the full-text in the database, click the "Check for fulltext at Wofford" link.
