Video Tutorial: Overview & Keywords
Overview & Keywords
Video 1 of 3: This video introduces students to the research guide and reviews how to create keywords.
Don't hop into researching your topic just yet! Take the time to develop a list of keywords to use throughout your research.
KEYWORDS carry some of the most important meanings that will open doors to vast amounts of information. You can develop keywords by searching reference sources, books, websites, and thesauri, among other materials.
Creating keyword lists are important in that you will use these terms to search library tools such as the library catalog and article research databases.
