Research Tips

Begin with a Library Research Tool


Carefully select the Keywords/Terms to Search 

  • (e.g., nouns, adjectives--not prepositions or verbs)


Search in more than one Research Tool

  • Because each tool collects information from different sources (e.g., journals, magazines, newspapers, books), you will find the best variety of results by searching at least 2 separate tools.


Save your Results! 

  • Find the Permalink or Persistent URL for each item you want ot use. This link will let you get back to the citation or read the article at a later time. Insert the link into an email or document.
