Important: Put parentheses around keywords connected with the boolean OR
Phrase Searching (use double quotes for exact match)
Wildcard symbols (these differ among databases, so check help files)
For example, EBSCOhost wildcard symbols are:
- The asterisk (*) matches multiple characters, type pediatric* to find all records containing pediatrics, pediatrician or pediatricians
- The hash sign (#) matches one optional character: type colo#r to find all records containing color or colour
- The question mark (?) matches exactly one character: type ne?t to find all records containing neat, nest or next.
