The words you type into the search box affect your search results. Not all authors use the same language to describe similar topics, so you will need to try a variety of searches.
- Create a list of possible words that could appear in a book or article related to your topic of interest.
- Come up with synonyms or related terms for those.
- If you're researching a topic from an historical point of view, it may also be helpful to come up with historical terms that might not be commonly used today.
- Stick to using 2-4 nouns when searching.
