Research Tutorials : Search Tips and Strategies

The tutorials on this page include general  and specialized search strategies for library databases, as well as guides for finding specific types of sources. 

For most topics, you will see a video and several links below it. The video and slides links have the same information, displayed in different ways--choose the one that works best for you.

Some topics also have handouts or walkthroughs--these are quick tip sheets or guides that can be saved or printed out for reference.
