Finding Articles Collected in Published Books

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., publishing vs. dissemination)

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