tips on typing keywords

Use "quotation marks" to keep your keywords side-by-side as an exact phrase, for example, "career choices"

Use the *asterisk as a wild card to give you the same stem with any ending, for example, therap* will give you the words therapy, therapies, therapist, therapeutic and any other word that has the root therap. In a LOIS book search, try to get in the habit of truncating any single word to bring up singular and plural. Example: career*

Use (parentheses) to nest, or combine similar keywords with the connectors OR, AND, NOT, for example, (career* or employment* or job*)

Another example would be: (career* or employment*) and name of career

choosing keywords

Here are some examples of keywords that will help find relevant books and articles:

  • career*
  • "career choice*"
  • employment
  • college major*
  • occupation*
  • "job market*"
  • vocation*
  • "vocational guidance"
