Search Strategy:

  1. Brainstorm simple keywords, such as the name of a person, place, organization, institution, branch of government, movement, etc.  Keep a list of the keywords that you use in your search.
  2. Identify a date range to narrow your search.
  3. Use quotation marks around search terms that are more than one word.  For example, "Justin Trudeau".
