Keyword search tip:
To increase the relevance of your results you can specify that your terms should be found in the title or subject. Most databases have drop-down menus for selecting the filed in which you want your term(s) to appear.
In databases items are assigned subject headings as access points to assist users in locating the content. When you do a subject search in a database, only the subject headings are searched for words that match your search terms. Using subject headings ensures that all items about the same topic have consistent subject headings and so they can all be accessed with one search term.
