Searching is ExplorationLocating information requires a combination of inquiry, discovery, and serendipity.

Information discovery is nonlinear and iterative, requiring the use of a broad range of information sources and flexibility to pursue alternate avenues as new understanding is developed.Association for College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education

Thesis Statements and Keyword Searches

Sample Topic:How is current neurological research helping children with dyslexia?

Key Concepts could be:How is current neurological research helping children with dyslexia?

Other words we might use for our searches:children dyslexianeurologicalelementary school reading dis*neuro*early childhoodlanguage dis*brain sciencelearning dis*

focus group

Boolean Search Tip #1

dyslexianeuro*

Use AND to find material related to both concepts.

neuro*

AND

dyslexia

Boolean Search Tip #2

Use OR to find material related to either concept.

reading disabil*

OR

dyslexia

dyslexiareading disabil*

Boolean Search Tip #3

neuro* finds neurology neurosciences neurobehavioral neuron

Boolean Search Tip #4

language disordersaphasic personspreschool childrenspeech therapy

Use quotes to limit your search to specific terms.

Controlled Vocabulary and Subject Terms

Finding the appropriate subject words or subject tags that describe your search topic is essential.

Keep track of any good words you find; you will use them in subsequent searches.

Refining Your Search Results

After finding the subject headings that apply to your thesis statement, you may need to refine the number of results shown in your list.

Use Boolean Logic to Combine Terms Within Fieldschildren OR elementary school OR early childhood ANDdyslexia OR "reading dis*" OR "language dis*" OR "language dis*"ANDbrain development OR neuro*
