Tip sheet for proximity search operators

I've started a page in the Reference Handbook on "Proximity Searching" that offers the operators for "any word order" searches and "restricted word order" searches in the following:
  • CSA (Cambridge Scientific Abstracts)
  • CUNY+
  • EBSCOhost
  • Factiva
  • LexisNexis Academic Universe
  • ProQuest
  • WilsonWeb
The page has a hyperlinked table of contents at the top so you don't have to scroll down the page to get to a particular section. Before I go adding more databases, please leave a comment posted here on this blog to let me know your thoughts about this.
