Google Advanced Search
- Use the search techniques you learned about for other databases here.
- Note: Google does not support nesting (parentheses) or truncation (*).
- It does something called automatic stemming, which is sort of like truncation, but takes the control away from you and isn't as exact.
- Note that limiting your search to articles where your words occur in the title is a kind of field searching, and can vastly narrow your searches and increase the relevance.
