    Google is a tremendous search engine - It is very smart -can interpret "natural language" (i.e. plurals, misspellings,foreign words)

    BUT it can not always get the researcher to the end-userproduct BECAUSE of authentication and subscription!(Problem with Google Scholar as well!)

    Deep Web (i.e. searching for a plane or train ticket toParis at 20.00 tonight)

    Not as smart as Google (although this is improvingwith various library software upgrades)Start with KEYWORD search (Use NOUNS, not verbs,adjectives, pronouns or prepositions!)Basic principles:

    Boolean (AND, OR, NOT)Truncation: uses stem of a word such as THEAT* retrieves theater,theatre, theaters, theatres etc.) This is also called using a WILDCARD:sometimes it is ? or ! or *Controlled vocabulary (index, thesaurus, Library of Congress SubjectHeadings)

    Full-text databases which have the full article in PDF/HTML to view/download(JSTOR, Academic Search Complete, Ingenta, Times Digital, ProquestNewspapers)

    Bibliographic/Indexes databases which contain all of the types of materialwritten about a particular topic such as journal articles, books, conference

    proceedings, theses, reviews, etc. (Periodicals Index Online, Philosophers Index,PhilPapers)

    Encyclopaedia/Dictionary databases (Oxford English Dictionary, Dictionary ofNational Biography, Stanford Encyclopaedia of Philosophy)

    Citation Indexes which detail the importance or impact of particular article(Web of Knowledge Social Science Citation Index, Arts and Humanities Citation

    Index)

    *Databases blur these distinctions - Both Academic Search Complete andJSTOR have citation information on more recent articles but not the full text(yet) because of moving wall. Ingenta Journals have a mixture of full textarticles and citations because of subscription/access.
