Academic Research Resources

Keyword Search vs Subject Search
- Keyword searches are similar to Internet searches, in that the catalog/database will look for the words you use wherever they may be on a page.
- You can also search by subject, which is more specifc. If your subject search returns 'no results' then do a keyword search.
