When you're working on a research project, you need to use terms that relate to your topic to find information sources - but you also need to be flexible. Combining multiple terms will help you find sources that are more closely focused on your specific topic.
These are some useful terms to use for a research project in women's history. Other terms may be useful as well. Use specific words, but only use one or two word phrases - not whole sentences! Try both plural and singular forms, and try varying combinations.
The search terms listed above can be used in Google, but you'll find more reliable and authoritative sources searching in the library's OneSearch catalog - or in Credo Reference, an online collection of reference and research sources.
