Search Strategies

Secrets of super-searchers:

As you research your topic, create a list of keywords. Revise the list as necessary to focus your research.

Be sure to include terms relating to issues, events, important organizations and/or people related to your problem. Also, make sure to combine terms to focus your search results.

Use quotation marks around phrases, limit your dates and choose specific publication titles to further narrow your results.
