Broad databases, covering a wide variety of topics, are useful for interdisplinary research. These databases are a good place to begin your search on most topics.
Tips for better search results using Boolean or Advanced Searches
urban and city searches for occurrences of both words
urban or city searches for or all, but both are not required
urban not city searches for occurrences of the word ‘urban’ but without use of the word ‘city'
"urban planning" searches for the words as a pair not individually
art* searches for art, arts, artistic, artful, etc.
m?n searches for man and men.
Keyword mapping tools can be useful when exploring a new topic. Try using this for discovering new keywords or for broadening or narrowing your search.
