After choosing a topic, you can follow these steps to do your library research:
1) Formulate a research question or thesis statement based on the topic you select.
2) Identify key words in the question or statement.
3) Brainstorm alternative terms or phrases for those key words.
4) When searching, combine and use the best terms rather than typing in your original question or phrase.
