Search Tips: Use quotes to search for phrases (for example: "Civil War".) Use an * for wildcard searches (for example: biochem* will return biochemistry and biochemical.) AND, OR and NOT can be used for Boolean logic (for example: ((biomedical AND engineering) NOT nuclear)) - Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT) must be ALL CAPS
Google Scholar, a subset of Google, can help you find free scholarly materials, or those Reese Library pays to subscribe to. It can complement database searching but should not be the only database you search.
