Prepare a search for the following question:

Do advertisements affect body ima

In the first box on the left below list keywords (synonyms) for advertisements and in the box below that list keywords for body image. Compare your keywords with the ones in the boxes on the right.


Now combine your keywords in a search string using boolean operators, nesting, and truncation.


In the box below create a search string for the following research question:
What role did Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass play in the Underground Railroad?

Note: Using "or" will pull up documents about Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad or Frederick Douglass and the Underground Railroad as well as documents about the involvement of both with the Underground Railroad, so it will probably produce more results.
