Where are you going to 'shop'?

Developing a search strategy requires thinking about where to search as well as about the best terms to use.

Just like when you shop, sometimes your best choice will be going to a 'big box' store; other times you'll want a more specialized 'boutique.'  

   The library equivalent to a Big Box store involves using the 'library searchbox' on the library's front page, or accessing Google Scholar through a link from a library page

 

 The library equivalents to a specialized 'boutique' store are the library catalogue or specialized databases.
