On a Broad Topic
- Use the listing of Databases by Subject to find the subject category that best describes your topic. You may find your topic falls under more than one potential category. Use a Multi-Subject database if you're not sure where to start.
- Searching for broad topics (i.e., a paper on "philosophy") can overwhelm you with articles from a database. Look over your notes or read a general reference work in the field to try and pick a specific issue or question within your broad category.
