Search Almost Everything will collectively search almost all of our general and subject databases at once. It’s a very large database that will return a very high number of results and you will find articles from a variety of different disciplines. Go to www.sunyjefferson.edu/academics/library. There you will find a search box for Search Almost Everything.
Gale Literary Resources is a smaller database that only searches a collection of literature databases. It contains biographical information, literacy criticism, overviews and the full-text of over 150,000 poems, plays, short stories and speeches. To get to Gale Literary Resources, follow this link thread: Articles-JCC Databases-> English and Literature-> Gale Literary Resources
Combining multiple keywords in a search will help you narrow your list of results.
For example, if I combine Sylvia Plath and childhood together in a search then the database will look for articles that mention both of these terms.
If I combine Sylvia Plath and childhood and father then the database will look for articles that mention all three of these terms.
More keywords combined = less results but more relevant to your research topic.
Fewer keywords combined = more results but less relevant to your research topic.
Every databases will provide some way to filter and refine your list of results.
