Let's say your topic is "online dating"

Brainstorm: Ask yourself questions related to your topic. What broad subject area might cover "online dating"? For example,

  • Which might cover why people use online dating sites?  Psychology 
  • Which might cover how online dating sites are designedComputer Science 
  • Which might cover how dating evolved to eventually move online? History 

No matter what your topic is, there is a guide (and a librarian) that can help.
