Having a search strategy is essential when trying to locate information from a database. One suggestion is to write your research question as simply as possible. Then select three of four main keywords or ideas from the question or statement that you created. Try to think of some other keywords that will help broaden or narrow your search. Try conducting an advanced search by using the keywords that you came up with and place them into all the search boxes and see what results are obtained.
