Module 1 - The Search Strategy

The search strategy

Remember, before you begin looking for information, you need to decide on the focus of your topic and then identify keywords and phrases which best describe your topic.

The purpose of Module 1 is to help you to:

  • Identify keywords or phrases which you can search;
  • Think about some alternative terms to broaden or narrow your search;
  • Apply your search strategy to find subject-specific information.
