|DO: Click on "Advanced Search" to put filters on your search if you get too many, like reading level or document type.||
DON'T give up after one search term doesn't give you what you want. Try rearranging the words or using synonyms for the word.
Example: "1960s Cars" doesn't bring up anything, try "1960s AND automobiles"
