These are questions on the Information Literacy quiz. See below for help discovering the answers.

1. Which search string will result in the fewest results?

I'm including a link to a video tutorial on Boolean Searching -- using AND, OR, and NOT to connect concepts to either narrow, broaden, or restrict a search. This video should help you answer this question.

2. What is the best way to find Literary Criticism?

You will want to look at the Research Databases on the Library home page Since you want to find Literary Criticism you will want to see the list of Literature databases. Select Languages and Literature in the Research Databases drop down box (Select a subject area...). If you know the databases on this list, you should be able to answer the question on the quiz.
