Don't Forget the Power of Strong Keywords!
Research is more fun when you figure out strong Keywords to locate and identify information. A keyword is a word that represents the main idea of your topic or research statement. One to three keywords is a good number to have. Put the keyword(s) in the search field when using databases. Here are some Keywords that might be helpful for the Mask project:
- Country name (Cuba, Tibet etc.)
- festivals or celebrations
