Once you find a database, here are some tips for searching it as efficiently as possible:
Most databases allow you to narrow down your results by subject area, type of material, or date published. Date published is especially important in an area like health/exercise science where information can become dated very quickly.
Explore the subject or thesaurus terms that are used by most databases. Since these are standardized, they allow you to find all the relevant information on a particular subject and weed out irrelevant results.
Remember to use Boolean Operators to help make your search more efficient:
AND will produce results that contain BOTH terms (e.g. birds AND bees)
OR generates results that contain EITHER term (e.g. dogs OR canines)
NOT results will include the first terms, but not the second (cats NOT musical)
Quotation marks will isolate that phrase: "natural selection" lists results containing only that specific phrase, but results for natural selection would contain natural AND selection somewhere, not necessarily side by side
