Keyword Searching

Another way to find subject headings is to do a keyword search. A keyword search allows you to locate articles that include your keywords within the title, abstract, or subject heading areas.


Notice the other subject headings that you could enter as keywords to help you find additional articles.

Use keyword searching to:

  • start your research
  • identify the subject headings used for your topic
  • find specific information (a fact, date or name)
  • find every occurrence of the words you enter in that database
