How to Search

1. Go into your selected database and enter your search term. You will see your results below the search bars (circled in red). If you end up with only a handful of results try this: click on choose databases. Here you'll be able to pick and choose which databases you want to search in.


2. After clicking choose databases you will get a window pop up with all the databases available. If you want to maximize your results you can hit select all.

3. Now that all the databases are selected, click search. The results in the red circle are now higher. This is a good trick if your topic is very niche or you are unsure of where you should search.
