Although every database operates by the same basic principles, each interface is unique and the vocabulary used to index articles might be slightly different, so it may require a little trial and error to create a really successful search.  Please consult a Research Assistance Librarian if you need help devising a search strategy for a particular research topic.

As you begin your search, it will be helpful to start by listing a set of keywords or terms that relate to your topic.  Unsure where to start?  Begin by finding overviews of your topic in a book, a reference material or through a credible website.  As you read, make a list of terms, including synonyms, that you could use to conduct your search.  A key tip in beginning a search is to begin as broad as possible with your terminology and search combinations and move toward specific.
