Research Tips

Tips for developing your research strategy:

Keywords are key:

  • Use Google/Wikipedia to brainstorm keyword possibilities
  • Have a variety of keywords ready if your initial search doesn't produce desired results.
    • Example:
      • manga OR "graphic novel"
      • shi OR shih
        • The OR Boolean operator is particularly helpful when there are multiple ways to spell something.
