Keywords are Important
When searching for sources, use keywords, do not type in whole sentences. Start with a broad topic and think about how it can be narrowed down E.g.:
Access to Resources >
- Housing and Navajo
- Healthcare and Navajo
- "Food Security" and Navajo
- Employment and Navajo
- Education and Navajo
There is no one 'correct' search word to use. Different keywords will give you more results.
Think of words that mean the same or something similar to your topic and try those words too.
- E.g. Poverty, Disparities, Income Inequality, Socio-economic status, etc.
*To help focus your results, add a term such as "United States" or another geographic limiter.
- You may need to broaden or narrow your search terms depending on your results :
- Broader Search: Gender instead of Women
- Narrower Search: Racism instead of Discrimination
- Use the asterisk * to truncate words and widen your search. Discriminat* will search for Discriminate, Discrimination, and Discriminating
- Use quotation marks to keep phrases together: e.g. "Four Sacred Mountains" "Mesa Verde"
Navajo and "Medical Care" AND Access
Navajo AND women AND abuse
Try your search terms in different combinations to get the greatest number of results.
