Searching with Library Search - where to start?

Keyword Searching

Before you start searching you need to:


  • Determine the key concepts - Your research topic/essay question will help you identify the major concepts and keywords e.g. sport fans, sponsorship, sports media.
  • Define your search terms - think of synonyms and alternate terms e.g sport or leisure or recreation; fans or participants or supporters; sponsorship or funding.
  • If you have trouble identifying your keywords and concepts use either the Sage Dictionary of Leisure Studies or Dictionary of Lesiure, Travel and Tourism or ask for assistance at the ASK La Trobe Help Zone in the Library to help you identify alternative terms and keywords.
  • Truncate words with an asterisk* to find plurals or variants e.g. sponsor* will retrieve sponsor, sponsors, sponsorship.
  • Put Phrases in quotations marks if you are not combining it with other keywords, e.g. "sports management" or "sports sponsorship".
  • Refine your search results to specific formats, publication dates and locations.
  • Each record for an item contains hypertext links to alternate related subjects/topics in the Details tab, follow the links if not sure of keywords.
