Searching library databases doesn't work like a Google search. Take a few minutes to brainstorm search terms before searching to find what you need.
1. Write down your topic (ex: genetically modified food as a solution to world hunger is controversial)
2. Break it into key terms (ex: genetically modified food; world hunger)
3. Brainstorm other terms (synonyms, broader or narrower terms)
Ex: genetically modified food, genetically engineering food, gmos; world hunger, starvation
4. Connect using AND and OR
genetically modified food AND world hunger = AND requires all terms so you get a smaller set of resutls
genetically modified food OR GMOs AND world hunger OR stavaration = OR looks for either term so you get a larger set of results
