Library Research Assistance
Welcome to the PSYC 496: Field Experience library research guide.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me (Jylisa Doney).
I am happy to chat via email and phone, or schedule an in-person research consultation.
Developing a Search Strategy
Each of you will have field experience areas that are slightly different.
Use these strategies to search for your own area.
Step 1: Identify your field experience area
- Example: I am volunteering at a community clinic that treats adolescents with eating disorders
Step 2: Identify the key concepts or ideas within your field experience area
- Concept 1: Treats
- Concept 2: Adolescents
- Concept 3: Eating Disorders
Where you are working or volunteering may also be an important concept to include in your search.
Step 3: List alternative keywords and synonyms for each concept
|Psychotherapy||High School Students||Anorexia Nervosa|
|Nutritional Counseling||Young Adults||Disordered Eating|
