Search Strategy???

You'll get much higher quality search results if you plan your searches carefully instead of just throwing a few words into a search box. A successful Search Strategy involves knowing both where to search and how to search.

Spelling Variations

In searching databases you need to be aware of variations in the spelling of words, especially those transliterated from other writing systems. Here are a few examples:

  • koran or quran
  • vishnu or visnu
  • moslem or muslim
