Search Tips

Choosing keywords will really help to narrow and broaden your search. Try to think outside of the box:

  • What are the main keywords (search terms) for your topic? (Note: Get rid of articles and unnecessary terms and pull out the essential terms)
  • What are synonyms for keywords that you could also use in your search? (Note: Begin to grow a bank of possible search terms!)
  • What broader concepts may your keywords fit under? (Note: Sometimes thinking broadly can help your search)

Watch the below video to see keyword development in action and then try it yourself!
