Top tips for searching:

 

Use appropriate search terms for primary sources: remember to search primary sources with language in use at the time the texts were created. Check the OED (linked below) to see when particular terms were used, and find variant spellings and forms (the historical thesaurus in the OED can also be very helpful for this).

Use advanced search where it is offered: this allows you to combine your terms more easily and limit where the database searches, e.g. in the subject description or title, rather than the full text, if you are overwhelmed with results. Most usefully, it also allows you to specify the time period you want to search.
