Choosing a topic can be difficult! Background research is meant to help us move through this step and prepare us for searching in the library databases. News articles are a great way to discover timely, relevant health topics. Here are a few tips for discovering a topic:
Think about a health-related topic you have a personal connection with. Is there anything that affects you or people you know that you would like to learn more about?
Read the news! Have you heard about something of interest through social media or news lately?
You can also search the library databases listed below for news articles. See the "Searching Proquest News" tab for a quick review of searching this database.
Important note! If you are searching through a website and run up against a paywall, try searching for the title of the article in one of our library news databases. If you still can't find it, email your librarian (info on the right!).
