Pre-Calculus: Databases

Searching Tips

Databases are collections of articles that are published on a regular basis to report current research within a discipline. Use keywords, phrases, titles or authors or use Boolean operators (AND, OR, or, NOT) to construct a more complex query. Refine using these filters to narrow or expand your results most related to your topic. Keywords:  Math, Calculus, Physics, Biology, etc.

Search Articles

Once you have identified your topic, check to see if it is too specific, if it is, work toward a general focus. This will help you generate a list of keywords or concepts related to your topic. Use our Web Discovery service to search articles from databases subscribed by the LUMS Library. Keywords: mathematical equations etc.
