How to search for information: Understand search results

Understanding search results

Too many results?

  • Try using more specific keywords (marketing > direct marketing)
  • Limit your query results by language, publication date or material type
  • Move your truncation marker to the right (touris? > tourist destination?)

Too few results?

  • Try new keywords (travel, tourism, tourists, leisure, ...)
  • Do away with some of your limiters
  • Try moving your truncation marker to the left

Zero results?

  • Check your spelling
  • Check how you have combined your query terms. 
  • Did you use the right truncation symbol or language?
  • Would some other database be better?
