It is important to pull out the KEYWORDS of your topic to search the Library databases. Think about all of the different terms you can use for a subject (i.e. youth, adolescent, teenager, etc.). Remember you can perform exact phrase searches by using quotes around your phrases. You can also narrow down results by doing a SUBJECT or TITLE search.
|What challenges do homeless youth experience?||homeless youth AND challenges|
|What gender inequalities exist in the workplace?||gender inequality AND work|
|How does social media affect teens?||social media AND teenager|
|Does someone's ethnicity affect their educational experience in college?||ethnicity AND college students|
Here is an example of how you might enter search terms in the EBSCO search interface.
