Getting Started

As you begin ask yourself:

* What vocabulary describes the topic?

* What KEYWORDS, related and synonymous terms come to mind?
For example, in reading about "political and military intervention" you may come across related terms and phrases such as - "Right to Protect," "Right to   Intervene," "Responsibility to Protect," "R2P." All of these search statements may retrieve additional citations on the topic.

* What sort of material do you want to read or view, i.e. books, articles, images?

* Where will you find "academic" quality material?

* How should you EVALUATE print and online sources?
