Tips for Searching for Information

Before beginning to search for information...

1. Think about  information needed (articles, government reports, statistics, etc.)

2. Break down your topic into search terms.  One way is to put terms into "PICO" format:

P=Population/Problem (Ex: medication compliance and seniors)

I=Intervention (Ex: Automatic alarm pill boxes)

C=Comparison (Ex: Home nursing visits)

O=Outcome (Ex: Increased medication compliance)

3. Build your search using the following tips.

  • Put phrases in quotation marks (Ex: "medication compliance")
  • Think of synoynms for your search terms (Ex: senior, elderly, aged)
  • Connect the synonyms with OR.  Put AND between the different elements of your search.

Ex: "medication compliance" AND (senior OR elderly OR aged) AND (alarm pill boxes OR home nursing visits)

4. Think beyond Google.  Try  the resources on this subject guide. Or, find resources for a topic by using the search box on this page.

5. Below are handouts with tips for some of these resources.
