Keyword Searching

Think about what keywords you are searching for on the databases.  You will want to create a short list of keywords that will help you try different ways of finding the information.

Example:  If I am researching China and social structure.  I might do some of the following keyword searches:

  • China social structure
  • China family
  • China class
  • Han family
  • Han class
  • etc.



When using the online databases, citations are automatically created.  Copy and paste the source citation into a GoogleDoc and check that it is formatted correctly.  You can build your bibliography as you do your research!

Things to Remember about creating a bibliography:

  • each citation should have a hanging indent (for help on creating a hanging indent in Google Doc, click HERE)
  • citations should be in alphabetical order
