The purpose of this activity is to help you become more familiar with UMUC Databases, searching, and narrowing/broadening a search.
In the first library exercise, you conducted a keyword search. In this activity, you will learn about subject searches.
Please complete the following steps after you have watched library tutorial #2:
1. Conduct the same key word search you conducted for library tutorial #1. Then use the SU Subject terms drop-down option to narrow your search even more. Please take notes on how you altered your search. (You will use them later in class.)
2. After you’ve searched, acquire one article from your new search. Write a short summary of the article. Remember to cite your source using APA guidelines.
