Search Records

To keep track of what databases and indexes you have searched, start to keep a SEARCH RECORD of these sources. You will quickly forget what you have already consulted, and these records will make it easy to see what you haven't yet covered and may also be useful in discussions with your advisor or a librarian.

*It is also a good idea to note the search terms you used with electronic databases, that way when you review your results with your advisor or a librarian, they can suggest other terms that might improve your results.

For example:

Midcat

keyword: china and cultural revolution and sources
keyword: china and cultural revolution and personal narratives
keyword: red guard*
subject: China -- History -- Cultural Revolution, 1966-1976 --
...
