Tools to help you identify a topic of interest and practice with research questions and keywords.
Use popular sources for background reading, or "pre-search." Use the 5W's technique to craft some possible research questions. Pull out the essential "key" words to search both quality websites and academic databases (CINAHL - and be sure to access the database via the library portal). Remember: articles you choose as evidence in your paper should be scholarly.
