Research Survival Guide


Trouble Brainstorming?

If you have trouble coming up with a topic or its keywords:

  •  Check a subject encyclopedia for ideas and concepts.
  •  Do some exploratory searches in an article index like "Academic Search  Premiere."  Look at the abstracts or summaries of articles that interest you;  they may give you ideas for topics. Also, look at their subject terms for  possible keywords.
  •  If you need help, ask a reference librarian.
