You get to embark on research! We get to help you get there!
Two simple questions can help get you started:
1. What do I know about my topic?
2. What do I want to know about my topic?
List out the answers to those questions using single words or simple phrases. These will become your keywords.
Developing Your Research Topic
Sometimes when doing your research, you may get so many results you don't know what to do ... that's when you need to "narrow" your topic. Is there something more specific about your topic that you can use as a keyword? Also if you aren't finding enough information, broaden your topic, take a step back and determine broader keywords.
If you are searching and searching and can’t find the information you need, be sure to Ask A Librarian for help. A librarian may be able to suggest other resources or similar topics by tweaking your topic to help find resources on your topic.
