As you use 'search terms' some will work and some won't. One may work in one database but not in another. Make notes, cross off terms and add terms as you search. Add more columns if needed. 

To much information - narrow your search. Use a term that is more specific. 
Not enough information - broaden your search. Use a term that is more generic.
