Frustrated by keyword searching in those library databases? Well, did you know that the EBSCO databases (think Music Index and RILM) offer subject headings much like the library catalog? This valuable facet allows you to narrow your search to allow for more pertinent results.
Did you also know that you can set up search alerts within the database? This cool option allows an email to be sent to you when new articles appear within your search boundaries. Or set it up to be delivered as an RSS feed, a topic we’ve discussed before. This saves you the onerous task of checking back again and again, letting the database do the work for you!
