Using Advanced Search

Looking for an article by a specific author? Have a citation and you're trying to track down the full text of the article? Try FASTsearch first.

The Advanced Search screen is the preferred choice for research experts. It allows you to expand your search beyond keywords.

Advanced Search allows you to get very specific so that you don't waste time scanning through irrelevant materials.
