Where Do I Start?

Develop a Search Strategy:

  • Write your topic as a question.
  • Think of as many words as you can to describe your topic. Add more words, subject headings, and public policy terms that you find as you search.
  • Combine the terms for your online searching using Boolean Logic (AND, OR, NOT) to get more relevant sources.

  • Think about what you already know about your topic. What more do you want to know?

  • Take time to explore what kind of information is available.  See what others have published in books or periodical articles.

  • Be open to new ideas:  Modify your topic as you discover more information.

Remember:

  • Research is a process. 

  • It takes time to search and to think about what you find and how it fits with your topic.
