Formulate your questions: are you interested in background information (culture, history, technique), scholarly discussion of a topic, information about materials, technical guidance? Where do you think this information might be published -- books, journals, magazines, newspapers?
This guide highlights resources in the library that might be useful as you work on this project. If you are having any trouble finding what you need, please get in touch with us.
Brainstorm variations on your keywords: nomads, nomadism, nomadic. Rather than enter separate searches for each variation, use the “wildcard” symbol * to find results for all of them at once:
nomad* (keyword search in the catalog)
Subject headings are a powerful tool to use when searching the library's catalog or databases. Rather than finding items that include your search term anywhere, a subject search will find materials specifically cataloged under that subject. Subject terms are linked and can be used like tags to sift through results (e.g. in Fleet SEARCH) or browse the catalog:
nomad* (subject search in the catalog)
