Narrowing My Search

I often get a large number of books and articles for my search and need to narrow down the results list using the options on the left side of the results screen.

I can limit my results to articles appearing in scholarly or peer-reviewed journals. I won't find books or videos when I check this box.

The publication date helps me limit my sources to information that is current for my topic.
