Finding Books: Getting Started

Before conducting your search:

  • Consider how your argument might be broken down into keywords or phrases.

  • Compile a list of synonyms for those keywords.  What other terms might scholars use to talk about your topic, and how do these terms reflect the type of argument scholars are making?  (E.g., insurgency vs. rebellion)

  • Consider which intersections among your keywords will be useful for searching

See the Search Tips tab for additional information about searching Tripod Books & More and other catalogs.
