Before you can begin searching for information, you need to identify keywords related to your topic. Key terminology can be easily be found by scanning:
- Your research questions
- Articles found from background research
- Bibliographies found at the end of books and articles
If you are still struggling:
- Use a thesaurus to identify synonyms.
- Find pictures related to your topic, then describe them.
- Brainstorm keywords with a librarian, your instructor, or a friend.
