Research Tip: Searching Newspapers
Tip #17: Searching Full-text Newspapers
Think like a journalist. What words would they use?
Use the vocabulary in use at the time. (e.g., Water-closets instead of Toilets, Aeroplanes instead of Airplanes)
Combine synonyms with OR to increase results. (e.g., conservatives OR right-wing)
Use the asterisk (*) to get multiple endings of a word. (e.g., integrat* for integrate, integration, integrating, etc.)
To get words closer together, use proximity operators. (See the database's help page for correct syntax.)
Limit your search to "abstract" or "citation and abstract" (if available) to get more precise results.
