Tips for Database Searching

Do NOT search for phrases -- use individual keywords instead

  • BAD: La importancia de Moctezuma y el regreso de Quetzalcóatl en la conquista de México
  • GOOD: Quetzalcóatl AND Moctezuma AND "la conquista"

Combine multiple search terms to find specific results:

  • hispan* AND mestiz*
  • Lope de Vega AND comedia AND "Siglo de oro" 

Use OR when you're uncertain of what spelling, name, or word to use: 

  • Quixote OR Quijote
  • Malinche OR Malintzin OR Marina
