Conduct your search
It's time to conduct your search! You know what question you want to answer, you have thought of search terms that are fitting for the question, and you know in what type of information source you want to search.
What information do you need to find?
Hanze Library Guides
Which information source is the most relevant for you, depends on the type of information you want to find, Sometimes a book fits better than an article. Through the Library website you can find many information sources and make your choice. The best way to get to the most relevant resources is by using the Hanze Library Guide of your programme.
A Library Guide contains the information and sources that are helpful for finding articles about your topic. You'll find links to databases, minilectures, and contact information as well.

If you have any questions about our collection and/or how to use it, please contact your information specialist.
Increase or decrease the number of search results.
Nobody has the time to scan hundreds or thousands of search results on relevance. Therefore it is important to be able to decrease the number of search results without throwing relevant literature out of the results.
Tip! What to do when you have too many results:
It's frustrating to not find many or any search results. Keep in mind that you might not have the most relevant database for your topic.
