Tips for Searching Databases about any Topic

1. Searching that exact concept

Ex: "#metoo" OR "me too movement"

The newer the concept, the fewer sources there are likely to be!

2. Generalizations of that concept

Ex: consent

Ex: sexual assault

3.  Generalizations AND region/time

Ex. consent AND twentieth-century

Ex. women's rights activism AND Georgia

Ex. social media activism AND gender 

4. Topic and style of analysis

Ex. consent AND feminism

Ex. consent AND interview study
