When researching books, articles and websites, remember:
Searching is CREATIVE - use synonyms or different search words to find the sources you need.
LEARN as you search - keep your eyes open for new words or terminology that you find in your sources (book, article or website results). Use this new search vocabulary for your next search.
Be a DETECTIVE - if you find a good source, dig deeper and explore any links or other suggested resources. These will lead you to more information.
Look in MORE THAN ONE PLACE - use all the search tools available to you, such as library databases, books, eBooks, and websites.
DON'T STOP after one or two tries - if you can't find what you need, ask a librarian for help.
