Part 2: Being Strategic When Conducting ResearchNow we will focus on the topic you have developed in the prior units. This activity will set you up for success as you use the library databases to research your topic in our next unit.16. Enter the thesis statement you have formulated for your topic.17. Keywords:  (What are the main words that describe your subject and what you want to say about it?)18. Synonyms:  (What other words can you use that mean the same thing as your keywords?) Using synonyms EXPANDS your search. 19. Narrower Terms: (What are some specific things you want to know about the keywords?) 20. Expanding/Broader Terms:(What larger subjects include your keywords or synonyms?)Hint:  See the next page for some search strategy reminders21. Indicate two (2) Herzing University Library databases you will use to search for your topic:Database #1:Database #2:

22. Identify one (1) source (article, e-Book, video, etc.) you locate that addresses your topic. Include title, author, date of publication, which database you located it in.Title:Author:Date:Database:23. Please describe your experience completing the library search in Part 1 of the assignment. What did you learn that you did not know before?  What seemed particularly useful? Then, do the same for Part 2. How does identifying search terms, databases and a source move you forward in your research process? How will this be useful?Use Linking Words and Symbols for Precise ResultsBoolean Logic Searching – Great Search Strategy for Precise Results:AND = documents include both one word and another.  This narrows your focus.OR = documents include one word or the other.  Use with synonyms.  This broadens focus.NOT = eliminates documents with even one occurrence of the word.  Use this cautiously!Check to see if you can use a wildcard to catch multiple endings.  This is also call truncation.  For example, work* might get work, worked, working, work, workers.  Look for Search Tips or Help on the search screen to see which symbol is used in the database or search engine you are using.Use parenthesis for grouping or nesting terms together. Here is a sample search:  research and (skills or strateg*)It will retrieve:1.    All documents retrieved will have the word research AND all documents will have some form of the word with strateg as the root. For example, strategy, strategies, strategize would all be found and included in my results list.

2.    OR All documents retrieved will have the word research AND the word skills.Most databases use Boolean linking words.  So, if you entered in the search research skills without an AND connector, you would only be searching for the exact phrase research skills. You would not get occurrences such as skills in research or research and writing skills.  Some databases have the option to use Boolean or not.  Check out the “Advanced” search function or the Help and Search Tips links in the database.xploring Databases and Being Strategic When Conducting ResearchPart 1: Exploring the Databases1.
