Hi everyone and welcome to the library research lesson for an Introduction to Diplomacy Research. I’m Melissa, the Online Learning & Scholarship Librarian, and in this lesson we’ll be covering what databases are and how to develop a research strategy.

I’ll also do some search examples with keywords in multiple databases and remember that these strategies will generally work for all databases you’ll encounter throughout your program.

Towards the end, you’ll see a video on how to find new sources from the sources you already have and information on getting help from the library.

So let’s get started!
