Think About Your Search Strategy

  • Use one or two keywords - not a full sentence. 

  • Use quotation marks to search for an exact phrase. Example: "Nobel Peace Prize"

  • Brainstorm keywords! Not getting results? Switch up your keywords, use synonyms, or look at what words are being used in other articles about your topic.
