ENGL 105, Academic Writing: General Search Tips and Handouts

Using Limiters on Your Search Result

When you have done your search, don’t forget to use the limiters. The main ones are:


Available in the Library Collection= you will be able to read the articles/books online or find them in print in the library
Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) =   if you need journal articles only
Catalogue only = limits mainly to our book collection
Subject = a listing of alternative keywords that you can use to improve your search
Geography= want to limit to Canada? use this
Limit by Database  = gives you a list of the databases that have been searched (from here you can limit to only one database)
