To complete a thorough literature search on your topic, you need to develop a great search strategy. Learn how a systematic approach to searching can help you to find resources on your topic more efficiently. This hands-on workshop will show you how to:

  • Think about the concepts and keywords
  • Identify databases for your topic 
  • Structure your search terms to find relevant results 
  • Modify your search strategy when things go wrong 
  • Save your searches 
  • Locate highly cited articles in your area 
  • Use Interlibrary Loan and Bonus+ to request resources 

You will also have the opportunity to select a discipline-specific workshop. Please bring your own laptop.
