When searching in catalogs and databases:
- Be creative in the words you use; if one doesn't work, try something else. Think of words with related meaning, such as natural resource management or restoration or conservation.
- Begin with keywords, and use the subjects found in the articles that come up to find more information
- Use quotation marks around phrases, so they won't be searched as individual words.
- Use advanced search features in catalogs and databases to limit by date, language, type of article, etc
