What is this grid about?

Databases work best when your search is pretty clear. That's hard to do when you don't know what you don't know yet!

This grid roughly maps to a multiline database search so that you can search multiple related terms at once. Comme ca:

jstor advanced search. jorge luis borges and wandering jew or jewish or judaism and dreamtigers or el hacedor

Looking for scholarly criticism?

If the book is quite current, you may have trouble finding scholarly criticism on the book or author you are writing about.

To remedy this, you will need to find discussion of a different text to which scholars could apply a similar critical or theoretical approach.

Use advice about search strategies to think about savvy keyword formulation.
