Try some of these subject headings to find library materials and generate research topics. Or, try combining subject searches and setting other search criteria in your own Advanced Search.
Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT, and sometimes NEAR) allow you to specify logical relationships between search terms—to limit, broaden, or define your search—thus leading to more useful results. You will see these options in library catalogs, databases, and search engines. It helps to experiment with different search terms and try different combinations for more relevant or different results.
A search for teaching AND learning narrows results to only items that include both terms.
A search for teaching OR learning broadens results to items that include either term.
A search for teaching NOT learning limits results to items that include teaching, but eliminates any results that also include learning.
Advanced searches provide options for refining your search criteria, often leading to more useful results. Check out the following sample searches below, or try your own Advanced Search.
TIP: Select the information button next to the sample searches to review the parameters for the searches below. In advanced searches, you can specify search fields, combine search terms, restrict copyright dates, select what type of material you want (book, ebook, media, etc.), and more.
