To decide on a topic:
Choose a topic that interests YOU.
The best way to get this right is to really use your own imagination to see what you respond to. Your first tries are important. You can narrow them down later.
The "Article Quick Search" tab on the library home page, (or try it in the widget below), is the place to begin your research by typing in keywords and then adding filters from the search results landing page. Article Quick Search gathers results from most of the library databases but not all of them. It is a good starting point, especially for getting background on possible topics for a paper.
When searching the library databases, look for thebutton to locate the full-text of an article or request interlibrary loan for items that the Library does not own.
Once you start to narrow your topic, finding the right keywords is important. Don't be afraid to let your topic change as you do more research. Note: when the narrator says "one search" what she really means is "Article Quick Search"
