Comp I - D'Alotto: Getting Started

Preparing for Research

           

Think about your Searching Strategy

Keyword searching is how you typically search web search engines.  Think of important words or phrases and type them in to get results.

Subject headings describe the content of each item in a database. Use these headings to find relevant items on the same topic.  Searching by subject headings (a.k.a. descriptors) is the most precise way to search article databases. It is not easy to guess which subject headings are used in a given database.
