Caveats to Searching Multiple Databases at Once
While searching multiple databases at once can be useful, by definition it's lowest-common denominator searching. None of the advanced search techniques available in individual databases will be available. Some pitfalls to watch out for:
- Your search results may mix apples and oranges... or, less figuratively, things like articles and dissertations.
- Subject headings won't be consistent.
- Databases with full-text searching may be over-represented in your results, simply because they have more words to match on.
- Relevancy ranking doesn't work well.
