Not sure what topic you want to research? Seeing a list sometimes helps!
Keywords for Your Topic
Once you have determined your topic, use the topic to generate keywords to search the library article databases.
Keywords from topic - think of synonyms for your keywords, or any specific methods of forest management you ran across during your preliminary research
Don't feel like you have to spend a lot of time on synonyms. The library databases will help you determine other useful keywords.
Keywords to Search Terms
Use the Advanced Search (the default for EBSCOhost databases). This will help you break up your search.
If you have hundreds or thousands of results, use the limiters on the left to narrow the results.
Once you have found results you like, you can email the articles to yourself.
