Tips for Finding Articles

by Kailah Neal on 2021-01-20T13:53:04-05:00 | Comments

Use the tips below to find the articles you need for your research papers.

  • Make a list of possible keywords. Use a thesaurus to find the best synonyms for your topic. Most library databases include a Thesaurus or Subject Terms tool for finding related keywords.



  • Refine your results. After typing in your keywords, select some filters to narrow your search. Limiters like Full-Text and Peer Reviewed are some of the most popular with students.
