Q. What keywords or search terms should I use?
One of the research skills you develop at university which forms part of your assignment is your search strategy. Part of creating a search strategy is finding your keywords and alternative terms that you use to search on the databases.
Librarians and Help Desk staff can sometimes advise on keywords. However, it is your responsibility to read around your subject area to establish what keywords are most appropriate for your literature search.
If you don't know where to start, we suggest you start with your reading list, and then search the library catalogue for additional materials.
