Digging for Info/ KEYWORDS

The easiest way to search for information electronically is to enter a couple of keywords into the search box of the resource and see what type of results you get. This strategy, however, will often result in too few, too many, or irrelevant results.

In order to retrieve the most relevant results, you will need to construct a search string.  This can be done by combining terms with an "and" between terms such as...

Philadelphia and Eagles 

Or by putting quotation marks around terms to make sure the topic is searched as is...
 
"fossil fuels"
