Prepare a search strategy

Remember all those kewords? Now's the time to put them to use. 

Your next step is to put your keywords together. Combine them using AND to narrow your search, and OR to broaden it. If at first you don't succeed, try different words, synonyms, and related concepts.

For more about using AND, and OR to combine search words, check out this document:

 

Remember

  • Avoid full sentences
  • Use precise language
  • Keep expanding your list of related terms
  • Look beyond the first few results
  • Be persistent!!
