Tips and Tricks

  • Remember that less is more--don't try to make your poster too busy. 
  • Search "full text" or keyword.
  • Use Google Scholar and research databases--see below. 
  • Do a multi-disciplinary search; don't limit yourself to only searching one discipline. 
  • Utilize citation chaining--if you find a good resource, find the citations for that resource, and check those out as well.
