Searching Tips

1. To locate an article in a scholarly journal, do a keyword or subject heading search in one of the databases listed on this web site under the tab, "Find Articles". Remember to limit by "scholarly journals" in the database, if available. Examples of keyword search statements:

                       sexual dimorphism
                       bone identification
                       metric analysis and human bone*
                       (bone or skelet*) and identification
                       biomechan* and joints
                       pelv* and morphology
                       size variation and crani* vault
                       size variation and (crani* or skull) and vault
2. In the databases, consider truncating terms in your search statement with an * asterisk to find alternative endings/spellings. For example, skelet* will find skeleton, skeletons, skeletal.  While most databases use an asterisk as a truncation symbol, the WSU Online Catalog's symbol is a "?".
3. Consider whether or not there are multiple terms that could be searched for your topic, e.g. skull or cranium. These terms can be searched together in "or" statements.

4. To find an article in an anthropology encyclopedia on your topic, select one of the encyclopedias listed under "Reference Sources" in the tabs above and search by topic.

5. To find a book or ebook on your topic, search in the WSU Libraries Online Catalog

     Examples of keyword search statements using "Keyword Anywhere":  
                        bone identification
                        crani? vault

     Example of keyword search statements using "Keyword Anywhere (a, or, not):

                       vault and (skull or crani?)
                       radiology and skelet?                       

Locating Full-Text

If none of the above links are provided, click on Find Full Text or 360 Link to Full Text tosee if we have it in full-text in another database or if we have it in print. If the article is not available in any format, click on Get Additional Resources related to this and then Request this item from other library Submit Request to access ILLiad, our online Interlibrary Loan system.
