Tips on how to fill in the boxes Step One
News category Arts Sports News Step Two
Select a news source Entertainment news or Book,
movie, music, play reviews Step Three Enter
search terms select Full Text (rather than
Headline, Lead Paragraph, etc.) Use and between
search words, such as music and globalization or
klezmer and jazz or metropolitan and
parsifal. Put quotes around expressions, such as
"popular music" or "united states" combine as
"popular music" and "united states". Wild cards
for each letter ? for indeterminate number of
letters. Step Four Select the appropriate
date range (default Previous six months is
usually too narrow) Step Five (optional) Limit

America History and Life
  • ABC-Clio product.
  • Provides bibliographic references with abstracts
    to the history of the United States and Canada
    from prehistory to the present.
  • Articles date back to 1954.
  • Reasonably up to date April 28 search showed 557
    citations to 2005 publications.
  • Covers 2,000 journals published worldwide.
  • In addition to covering all key English-language
    historical journals, includes selected historical
    journals from major countries, state and local
    history journals, and a targeted selection of
    hundreds of journals in the social sciences and
    humanities.
  • Includes citations for dissertations and book and
    media reviews.

12
America History and Life A Few Searching Tips
  • Use quotation marks around phrases.
  • Boolean AND is default between search words.
  • Truncation multiple letters ? single
    letter. (Exactly the opposite of LexisNexis!
    Lesson here always check the truncation symbols
    for each product there is little consistency
    across databases.)
