Looking for only one term in a keyword search will give you far too many results--this is too broad. For example, If I only type in "Augustine" in a database, the results will be too many too count.

In order to streamline the search to your specific topic, type in general term in the first field (using a Keyword search) and then select "AND", and then type in a more specific term (related to your first term) in the next field.

The results should be more focused to your specific research goals. Upload the document below for an overview of Basic Research Strategy.
