Databases

* Don't try just one!

Search multiple databases - each database indexes a different collection of journals/sources.

* Think outside your search

Don't just use one specific search term - use terms that are more general, or are related to your topic.

* Change is good

If you don't have success at first, change your search terms.  Try synonyms or related terms.

*Cheat! 

When you find a good article, look at the subject terms or keywords that the database has used to index that article.  Use those terms in a new search.  Speak the database's language - it'll respond.
