* Many e-resources have a browsable Thesaurus (also called Subject Terms, Subject Headings, or Topics) to help you build a search. These subject words can be searched in a field called "Descriptors" or "Subjects" for more relevant search results.
* Use a truncation symbol to find alternate forms of words. In most e-resources this symbol is an asterisk * (the little star above the number 8 on your keyboard). For example: child* will produce all records that start with those 5 letters - children, childhood, childcare, etc.
