Remember to always take advantage of the advance search option when available on a free site. Free sites are offering increasingly sophisticated search options, such as Boolean and proximity searches, which were previously exclusive to paid services.

A short and very useful article. I recommend it for everyone conducting legal research, from the novice to the experienced practitioner.
