Search Tips and Examples

  • attitudes AND breastfeeding AND Mexico
  • public perception AND breastfeeding AND Mexico

When searching, try synonyms, which are words or phrases that are similar in meaning. To search for multiple synonyms at once, put them inside parentheses and connect them with the word OR.

  • (Mexico OR Hispanic OR Latin-American)
  • ("social norms" OR "societal norms" OR "cultural norms")

To focus the search a little more, just add the word AND along with a keyword:

  • (Mexico OR Hispanic OR Latin-American) AND breastfeeding
  • ("social norms" OR "societal norms" OR "cultural norms") AND breastfeeding
  • ("social norms" OR "societal norms" OR "cultural norms") AND breastfeeding AND Mexico

Search the Internet

You can use the same search techniques that you use to search library databases when searching Google or other Internet search engines.

Connect synonyms with the word OR and place them in parentheses.

  • ("norm violations" OR "social norm") AND drinking AND Europe
  • (Mexico OR Hispanic OR Latin-American) AND breastfeeding
  • ("social norms" OR "norm violations" OR attitudes) AND "medical marijuana"
