*Most used boxes: Truncation and Phrases

For librarians to link/copy to commonly used boxes.

Truncation: create a stem word

Truncation allows you to search for several similar terms using one word. For example if you wanted to search for information on industry in China, using the search term

     industr*

will return any results that include the words "industry", "industries", or "industrial".

Many databases use the asterisk * symbol for a truncation search; some may use a question mark ?. Check the help section of the database you're using to be sure, or 
ask a librarian.

Phrases: search for exact terms

Just like Google, you can limit your results to only items that use an exact phrase. If you search for the exact phrase "pulse generator", the following title will be included in your results,

 

          Design of a Tunable All-Digital UWB Pulse Generator CMOS Chip for Wireless Endoscope

 

but not the title

 

          Helix antennas for generators of short high-voltage pulses
