Student Research Guide: How to manage student debt: Advice to My Fellow-Students

Research Advice

 

I used Academic Search Complete for most of my research because it is easy to navigate and there is lots of information on college. It was nearly impossible to find information on scholarships and how to apply for them, I had to use google instead of the library databases to find out about scholarships. I found that using 3 similar words or phrases in the database search bars opposed to 3 somewhat related words gave me the best and narrowest results. For example, I would use financial aid, merit aid, and scholarships instead of college, financial aid, and wages.
