To focus your research, think about what kind of question you are asking.
When you are learning about a new topic in medicine, you are probably looking for answers to who, what, where, why, when, & how questions. These are also called background questions. Asking these kind of questions helps you explore a new topic & answers can be easily found in articles & text books, & basic reference sources, such as Wikipedia or a Research Starter online article in the library catalogue. These are questions such as:
1. Break down the topic of interest into its narrower aspects & choose one that interests you.
E.g. kidney diseases > chronic kidney disease (ckd) > how is it diagnosed?
2. Use UNIC's Library Search catalogue to find books, ebooks & ejournal articles
3. Enter words that describe your topic into Library Search.
E.g. chronic kidney disease, diagnosis
