GER 358: Beauty and Its Subversion: Find Articles

Basic Keyword Searches

  • beauty AND xxy

Use AND to connect words that must appear in a document

  • beauty OR aesthetics

Use OR if only one word must appear in a document

  • lessing NOT doris

Use NOT to exclude words or terms from a search

(Combining search terms with AND, OR, NOT is called Boolean searching. There is an explanation here.)

  • philosoph* 

In the Whitman catalog or MLA database, use an asterisk to truncate a word and allow for different endings. 

  • "neoclassical architecture"

Use quotation marks to enclose a phrase or words that must appear together in a document. 

  • (beauty OR aesthetics) AND philosoph*

You can combine two or more of these techniques to define and limit your search further.
