ACAP Library Pathfinder: Literature Review

Learn about the process of searching, choosing, recording and evaluating information for writing a literature review.

Recording the Search

It is important to record each search as you go using the template below if you need help. This template will help you: search systematically across multiple sources; write this section of the literature review; and help you keep track of your search sets as they develop.  You may add or remove databases and other literature sources from the table as necessary.
