Question and Answer

How do I select the best search tools for my topic?

Once you have a first draft of your research question, you can start looking for sources to help you.

As you begin, you will likely need to revise your question, and that is OK. Actually, it is an important part of the process. You’ll want to move from broader to more specific resources as your search.

Start by using your keywords to search in Academic Search Ultimate or Google Scholar.

If you need additional resources, you can begin to look for subject-specific databases.
