Q. How do I condence my research area so it not so general?



To narrow your search results, try using the Subject Guide Search located on the orange menu bar in Academic OneFile.  Databases have a controlled language that is more selective than a keyword search

The database's Subject Guide Search may also provide you with a better term, e.g. Same-sex marriage rather than Gay marriage).

After doing a subject search and selecting the blue link that best describes your topic, on the results page you can narrow your results further by using the Refine Results search function in the left hand column. 

Thank you for using Ask Us.  For further assistance please contact your Campus Librarians.
