American Literature I

Finding 15th - 19th Century Authors

Connie St. Clair-Andrews


Simple vs advanced searching l.jpg
Simple vs. Advanced Searching

  • Allows you to search for broad information, or very specific information

  • You use the simple search to find an author or title

  • One search term/phrase at a time

  • Allows you to build a more detailed/accurate search

  • Several search terms/phrases at a time

  • More options for limiting your search


Some advanced search techniques l.jpg
Some Advanced Search Techniques

  • Use simple Boolean: “And,” “Not,” “Or”

  • Use truncation: Shift + 8 = *

  • Use the Thesaurus, Topics, etc.

  • ILL if the article is not available here


Keyword vs subject searching l.jpg
Keyword vs. Subject Searching

  • Words you think of to use for searches, aka, natural language

  • Some databases provide a thesaurus to look up similar words or the official term; they are not always called a “thesaurus.”

  • Official words in a database or catalog, aka, controlled language

  • Try the subject terms found in one catalog in your other database searches too. Sometimes you can find more/different articles.


Author vs subject search l.jpg
Author vs. Subject Search

  • An author search is when you search only for those books written by the author.

  • Sometimes you get books the author is a co-author on, but usually if the book is an anthology it will not show up in the list.

  • A subject search is when you get books about the author, titles they penned, or the genre they wrote in.

    ――――――――――

  • Genre is: fiction, non-fiction, westerns, autobiography, etc.
