Keywords, Search Terms, and Subject Headings
This video explains how to search databases using keywords and subject headings. The concept of including synonyms in the search is illustrated using the example of a tennis shoe (shoe, sneaker, trainer, etc.) and how using subject terms can help. How to look up and use subject terms is demonstrated using the Academic Search Ultimate database.
