Boolean Phrase Searching
For example, lets say you want to find an article about single cell reproduction. Words that might help you retrieve a good number of articles without being overwhelmed are "single cell," "microorganism," "reproduction," and "propogation." Therefore, your search phrase could be "(Single Cell or microorganism) AND (reproduction or propogation)"

Use a Scholarly Review for Citations
Look for the publication type filter for "Review" articles as you search your topic.
The references in a "Review" article are a long list of available primary research on that specific topic! It's like the author(s) are giving you a long list of recommended reading and you can then search for any of those citations in our library.
