How to Search

The Search Box. Most databases, unlike Google, don't use a single search box where you enter a string of words. Instead you have several search boxes and options to "Select a Field."

Brainstorm Keywords. Break your research question down into one or more concepts. Develop keywords to describe each concept.

Search Tips: Put phrases in quotes.

Use various words to describe a concept but be sure to connect them with “OR.”

Select the  "Company Entity" field when searching for companies.
