EBSCO's Academic Search Elite uses the same search connectors as the online catalog, so you can often use a successful online catalog search strategy in this database as well. But you have to remain flexible! If a search worked well for you in the online catalog, but does not seem to be working in EBSCO, try a new approach. Playing around with different keywords, related concepts or synonyms might help you find what you need.
Type your search in the box and click the button labelled "Search" to proceed.
