Strategies to increase efficiency in research

Understanding the Results


Library databases return content and filter results based on:

  • what keywords are searched
  • eg. nursing will return nursing, not nurses or healthcare
  • limiters applied



Look at Setting up the Search page for more information on how to retrieve the content you want.




Library databases DO NOT filter results based on:

  • previous searches in a web browser 
  • social networking
  • political affiliation
