Publication Search Tips
If you don't know the complete title of the publication you're looking for, type the portion you know in the search field. A list of matches for your partial title appears.
Scan the list for the title you want and click the name to see available issues.
If you remember only that the title of the publication you want contains New York, type New York for your search. You'll find results including such publications as New York Post, New York Times, and New York Times Book Review (the results you find will depend on the database you are searching).
You can also search for publications you might be interested in using words that are likely to appear in the title. This approach is useful when you're interested in a broad subject and you're not sure what publications related to the subject exist.
If you're interested in documents about history, type history as your search word. You'll find a list of publications containing the word "history" in the title. You can combine your search with wildcard or truncation characters, searching for hist*, and finding publications with either "history" or "historical" in the title.
The only Boolean Operator that works during Publication Search is OR. If you use AND, ProQuest will search for titles that contain the word and.
