Search hints: 
  • Truncation (aka stemming)
    This is a technique that broadens a search to include various word endings and spellings. To use truncation, enter the root of a word and put the truncation symbol (usually asterisk *) at the end. The database will return results that include any ending of that root word. For example, truncating the  word "volunt*" will retrieve variant spellings/word endings of that root word and these include volunteering, voluntarism, voluntarily.
  • Boolean Operator
    The operator AND is automatically subsumed between the two keywords i.e. youth AND volunt*. You may also add the operator AND between the search terms and use OR to combine related terms to be searched. Group terms to be searched within round brackets (  ). Example:
    • (youth AND volunteer*) AND (career AND (path* OR aspiration*)
