Starting out your Research

Start your research exploration by breaking down your question to its basic concepts and find alternative terms for each one. This way you will have a list of interconnected ideas and various keywords to express them, which will come handy later on when you search the library or Scholar. A reference source like Credo can be useful at this point to make sure you have done the necessary background reading on issues or concepts you are not familiar with:
