Research Reminders

Research is a process. You probably won't find everything you need on the first try. You may need to do multiple searches or read some background information about your topic becore continuing to search.

If can't find much on your topic, try different keywords. Using synonyms or broader related terms can help you find more articles. As you research, be on the lookout for new keywords to use.
