Refining / Fine-tuning
Making your search more specific based on your results
After completing your initial search, read through any full-text documents and note any aspects of your topic that you might not have considered. Also make note of the subject headings or descriptors attached to your results. You might be able to use these for further searches.
If you get too many results from your search, try limiting it in some way. You can restrict a search to a certain range of dates or try a different type of search (Boolean, natural language, proximity operators).
