Search Terminology - Keywords and Subject Headings

When conducting research, always consider alternative keywords and subject headings for your topic. Begin by analyzing your topic or research question, and break it down into its key concepts. What keywords appear? Are there alternative keywords that come to mind?

For this course, keywords may include: equal justice; racial profiling; criminal justice system; discrimination; sex discrimination

Subject headings may include: Racism - United States; Discrimination in criminal justice administration - United States; Social justice; African Americans - Civil rights; Sex Discrimination; Women, Legal Status

When you discover a book of interest, select the "DETAILS" tab, and then the "FULL RECORD" tab to look at the assigned subject headings for that item. Note related subject headings, and click on them to find other books that are described in a similar way, and may prove useful.
