Activity 2 - Combine keywords with search tools

In Activity 1 you identified the keywords from the assignment question.  Then you created a list of alternative words for each of your keywords.

Now you need to combine your keywords and alternative words with a variety of search tools to create a meaningful search.

How will you use AND OR NOT?

Will you need to use truncation or wildcards?

Which words will you search for as a phrase?

Would you use a subject search?
