Research Tips

  • A simple way to start your search in a database or the library catalog is Buddhism AND the specific topic you are interested in.
  • Look for options to narrow your results list by source type (journal, book, etc.), language, and so on.
  • If you find an article or book that looks promising, check the bibliography for additional sources.
  • Use the "record" (the page that provides bibliographic and other information about an article or book) to identify subject headings, additional keywords, etc.
  • Use what you learn from each search to improve your next search.
