Subject Headings and Keywords

Although the acronym STEM is widely used, the computers and databases might not understand the way we do. Use individual terms  such as MEDICINE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, etc.  

If you are interested in MEDICINE generally, think about what aspect of medicine you are interested.

Are you interested in specializations such as:

  • Gynecology
  • Pediatrics 
  • Psychology
  • etc.

Or you are interested in aspects of:

  • Heath care
  • Medical education
  • Career choice 
  • etc. 

The above will make you think about what keywords to use to search for resources.
