_PSYC5131: Meta Analysis: Theory and Practice — Basic Search Skills

Library research guide for students in PSYC 5131.

Using AND, OR, & NOT To Build a Search Strategy

If you want to view this presentation in a larger format, which I recommend, look for the icon of four arrows pointing away from one another, located in the top right corner. Clicking on that will expand the size to make it easier to see.
