Search Strategies for Topical Research

Topical research generally requires some familiarity with the subject or advanced research skills. Below appear tips (with canned examples) for improving the precision of a topical search.

DOWNLOAD: This section of the Topical Research teaching Web used to provide screen captures of the research process. It used a technology, known as CatchTheWeb, which is no longer available. Consequently, we have removed the screen captures.

Search for a starting point. Then connect to it to search for an answer.

Add keywords like database, data base or data bank to a query.

Use phrases or multiple specific terms.

Start with subject directories.
