AskALibrarian! allows you chat or IM with a librarian about your reference questions; or, e-mail your questions and receive a response from a librarian. You can also Book a Librarian to make an appointment with a librarian for intensive individual research assistance.
Identify key words for your topic. You can combine search terms with AND so that each record in your results contains all of the terms. For example: libraries and censorship.
Consider using synonyms or related terms to expand your search, or to be sure you are covering your topic thoroughly. For example: school media specialist or school librarian. See if the database you are using has a thesaurus to help you decide on search terms.
Some citation styles may ask you to include a Digital Object Identifier as part of your reference for journal articles.
