HUSS130 Databases for Cultural Engagement Project Research: Home

Use SUBJECT HEADINGS to super-charge your search results

Subject headings yield very precise, focused searches, so as a general rule of thumb, if there is an appropriate subject heading for one of your concepts--USE IT!

How to Locate and Use Subject Headings

  1. Start with a keyword search
  2. Browse the results looking for relevant articles
  3. Look at the subject headings for each article that are usually listed near the abstract
  4. Subject headings will be active links, and clicking on one will produce a set of articles indexed with that heading
