It is usually not easy to guess which subject headings are used in a given database. Here is how to find out:
- start by doing a keyword search
- browse through your list of results and identify a couple of relevant sources
- look at the subject headings assigned to these sources
- most often they are live links you can click on to find other sources about the same subject. Or you can write the subject headings down and start a new search by subject.
Remember, when you search a database and do not get the results you expect, use the "Help" button or ask the reference librarians for help.
