This guide is intended to serve as a complement to our session together in the library.

Basic strategies and tutorials are presented here.

If you are stuck with anything pertaining to your research please let me know.


Math... with words!

Keyword searching using Boolean logic is is a way to link keywords together in little mathematical expressions. 



A search for “Pirate and Ship” will find results with both words present.  This works well when looking for two different ideas together.


OR ‘or is more’

A search for “Pirate or Buccaneer” will find results containing one term, or the other, or both terms together.  This works well for words with similar meaning.



A search for “Pirate not Baseball” will find results with the first term only.

Introduction to EBSCOhost

EBSCOhost Demystified

My friend and colleague Margaret Montet, Information Literacy Librarian here at Bucks, has kindly provided an overview of EBSCOhost. Please view, even if you have used EBSCOhost in the past. You may learn something new.


The Library has many tutorials online.  These guides help you with our various databases and other resources.

See them on the Video Guides page.
