instruct OR teach
Finding the appropriate subject words or “subject tags” that describe your search topic is essential. These subject tags apply in database indexes too. Keep track of any good words you find; you will use them later when you search for scholarly journal articles in the databases.
Start with the Subject
Hint: Divide your topic into its components and use “or” to combine synonymous terms in separate keyword fields.
