"Search Terms" are keywords and phrases (not a whole sentence) that describe your topic. Below are examples of ways you can use search terms to find sources:
- "war of the worlds" wells
- Title in "quotation marks" followed by author's last name.
- Enclosing words that go together in quotation marks helps with phrase searching.
- "war of the worlds" and wells and imperial*
- Title of the work plus author's last name and topic keyword
- The keyword truncated by the asterisk* picks up all forms of the word (imperialist, imperialism).
- "british imperialism"
- Topical keywords only.
- Picks up material about the topic in general, not necessarily connected with a particular author or literary work.
- wells, h.g.
- Author's last name followed by a comma, and first name.
- Lastname, Firstname search picks up material about the author's life and works in general.
