Trouble Brainstorming?

If you have trouble coming up with a topic or its keywords:

  • Check a subject encyclopedia for ideas and concepts.

  • Do some exploratory searches in a research database like General OneFile. Look at the abstracts or summaries of articles that interest you; they may give you ideas for topics. Also, look at their subject terms for possible keywords.

  • If you need help, ask a reference librarian.
