Questions

Subject: Library and Information Science

Question:

How can I narrow my search down for my research project?

Answer:

We often use Boolean search terms when we search a database, like Google Scholar. The three terms we use are: AND, OR, and Not. Combining these terms with the keywords, can narrow or broaden the results in our searches. The three terms serve different purposes. Here is a reliable source that offers more details and examples: https://library.uaf.edu/ls101-boolean

Usually Sociology departments use ASA Style citations. Here is some information about ASA Style citations: https://guides.library.unk.edu/c.php?g=510530&p=3488886 I would recommend checking your class’ syllabus in case your teacher wants you to use another citation style.

Answer:

Many databases, like library catalogs, have filter options that can be helpful in narrowing your search. Depending on the subject, you may filter results according to your research needs. I would be happy to help with database searching and research.
