Research Tip By: Jerry Jenkins

When using an online database it is a good idea to narrow down your seach options as much as you can. Not only can you type in a seach subject, but you can also narrow it down by answering questions in the advanced search option. This will allow you more accurate search results and cut down on the time you spend researching.
