How to find additional resources

To find additional resources for the topic of Aqueous Geochemistry, begin in Franklin, the library catalog. You may want to use other keyterms when searching for information on or peripheral to this topic. For example,

  • Environmental Toxicology
  • Aqueous Chemistry
  • Water Chemistry
  • Drinking Water
  • Surface Water
  • Groundwater OR Ground Water
  • Water Pollution
  • Acid Rain
  • Runoff
  • Leachate

As you investigate the topic more closely, particularly the journal literature, you will begin to find additional terms that can then be incorporated into your search to find more material. Remember to construct your search using the Boolean operators AND, OR, NOT and enclose phrases in quotations (ex. “environmental toxicology”)

  • The OR operator is used to string together like terms/synonyms. (“aqueous geochemistry” OR “aqueous chemistry” OR “water chemistry”)
  • The AND operator is used to combine 2 different concepts. (“acid mine drainage” AND “ground water”)
  • The NOT operator will remove a topic from your search. (“environmental toxicology” NOT “drinking water”) 
  • Savvy searchers use a combination of AND, OR, NOT when designing their searches (“ground water” OR groundwater) AND (leachate OR leaching OR runoff) AND (“heavy metals” OR copper OR arsenic OR mercury)

If you have any questions about constructing your searches, feel free to reach out to me!
