To use Academic Search Premier, perform a basic search by entering your search keywords in the Find field after navigating to the Basic search screen through the database. After entering your search terms, select the search to see the results. The exact method of how to use Academic Search Premier depends on what your search entails, how you access the database and what tasks you plan to complete.
Academic Search Premier allows you to go beyond a basic search by adding limitations such as Publication type to the search. Just select a search mode such as SmartText Search, and pick your limiters such as Full Text. To improve your search method, experiment with using different search terms. If you enter too few keywords in the search menu, your results become too broad while inputting too many keywords makes your search results too narrow.
