Using Limiters

Even with focused search terms, you'll often find that you need to narrow your result list even more. Databases offer limiters that allow you to focus your search by date range, specific type of article, full text availability, and more.  

There are a few different ways to employ limiters:

  1. Apply limiters to your search at the outset, and edit as needed.  
  2. Perform an initial search, view results, then apply.

Keeping our previous search of "teacher race" and student success, let's take a look at how the search can be focused more.
