Keywords

While not official subject headings, keywords can be very helpful for your research. Keyword searches look at all the information in the book or article record including title, author, abstract, table of contents, etc. When using keywords It always helps to think of synonyms, as the way one person would describe something is not the same way another would.

Matrilineal or Matrilineal Society

Matrilocal

Berdache or Hijra

What "Search Terms" to Use?

Using the correct words to search will help you find relevant information. Different authors and search tools use different words to describe the same concepts, so it is useful to have a list of similar and related terms when you set out to search for relevant information. Searching is an iterative process; perform a search, scan the results and see if any new terms or concepts emerge that you can use.  The process of creating these alternative terms is called brainstorming terms or concept mapping.
