I Do Not Know Which Items Are Relevant To My Topic

Not all of your search results will be relevant to your specific research question. Evaluate your results to decide what will be most useful.

Clicking on the title of a source from the search results will take you to its record, which is a page about the item that has details like the article title (or chapter title), journal title (or book title), publication date, subjects, and often an abstract/description/summary.

  • Subjects: describe the article topic, can also be used to find other related sources
  • Publication Date: corresponds to your topic's history and development
  • Description/Abstract: short summary of the source. Scan the contents to see if the information is relates to your topic.
