    Tips and Tricks

         Remember the two most important Boolean search operators, AND and OR. If your searches are retrieving too many hits, try narrowing your search with AND (e.g. S. aureus AND antibiotic resistance). If you're getting too few, try OR (e.g. S. aureus OR C. difficile).

         Don't forget print resources! Being able to access e-journals and other electronic resources is convenient, but some of the best resources are in print in the reference section or elsewhere in the library. You can use the library's catalog to find these resources.
