EXAMPLE: How about Code-Switching?

You start by checking out Gale Ebooks and type in "Code-switching" for some quick ideas on the topic. The auto-fill points you to "Code-switching (Linguistics). You find an article in the Encyclopedia of Language and Education on "Sociolinguistics and Language Education" that looks interesting. 

You follow up these new insights. Search the Hekman Library catalog for "Code-Switching". But you find that you really want books on "Code-switching (Linguistics)".

Finally you check a research database (Academic Search Complete) and try the keywords: "code switching" and "hispanic or latin*". You look for ACADEMIC or Scholarly articles and see that there are over 70 results to look over.
