It is helpful knowing the Boolean operators AND, OR, and NOT. These operators help you find information in universities databases. However, not all search engines use Boolean logic. For example, you do not need to use these operators when doing a search in Google Scholar or any Google search.
Boolean logic helps you connect terms, broaden a search, and exclude terms
OneSearch's Simple and Advance search provides features that will help you with your search.
Let's try a search - Find:
When you download a title, you should be able to find your search terms in the abstract, or keywords, or title, and hopefully within the content.
Another useful feature in OneSearch are the icons.
These icons offer you a permalink (unchanged URL), allow you to send an e-mail with the bibliographic information so you can find the title later, save the title to a research management software, and find the citation.
Google Scholar or Google Académico will also offer you access to journal articles, e-book chapters, and complete e-books.
The features Related Articles" and "Cited by" are especially important when evaluating the impact of a work. For example, if a work has been cited many times, it shows that other authors believe in the reliability of this work. Google Scholar will also alert you, if you can find a work on your own univeristy.
