Database Search Tips

1. Use the * [asterisk] at the end of a word to find all endings: 


2. Use OR when you're not sure what terms to use: 

  • e.g. POLICE* OR "LAW ENFORCEMENT" (Hint: OR is more)
  • use quotation marks for an exact phrase (e.g. "LAW ENFORCEMENT")

3. Use AND for fewer, but more precise, hits. For best results, use the separate search boxes and the drop-down AND in ADVANCED SEARCH

  • For example:
    • First Search Box:  STATISTIC* AND
    • Second Search Box:  POLICE* OR "LAW ENFORCEMENT"
