Keywords describe the concepts or topics you are investigating. Here are some tips for getting usable results from keyword searches in GALILEO and other databases.
- Combine concepts using AND between keywords. For example, protest AND rights The more concepts you include using AND, the smaller the result list. protest AND rights AND Georgia
- Use quotation marks to search for keyword phrases. For example, "civil rights" will retrieve information resources where those two words appear as a phrase.
- Expand results lists by describing concepts with synonyms using OR. For example, (demonstrations OR protests) AND "civil rights"
Use limiters that appear on the left side menu of results list to filter results by date, document type, etc.
