Library Databases

The databases are not in an order of importance since each patron has different research needs.

Generate Keywords for Searching

Take a moment to think about your topic.

Define your topic by asking yourself a set of questions.

Turn your topic into a research question (a thesis topic).

Think of words and phrases to use in a search of information regarding your topic.

If nothing works, change your search terms to find more specific or more general information.

Remember you can always ask for research help from a librarian.
