  • 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.
