Note this guide is to be used as a starting point to find materials for your topic, and should not be mistaken as an all inclusive list of resources
Keywords: broad/general terms found anywhere in the record; use as starting point to find information, then move to subject searches based on items returned of interest in your search.
Type terms in order of importance (e.g. watershed resources instead of resources watershed)
Subject headings (specific classifications given to materials about their subject area):
|Pesticides||Herbicides -- Application|
|Animal industry||Factory farms|
|Land use||Zoning law -- United States|
|Antibiotics||Antibiotics in Animal Nutrition|
If the above are not related to your topic, try searching Addison for one of your key terms (or over-arching terms) with "encyclopedia" or "handbook" (minus the quotation marks) to find a general starting point.
