Find new topics or keywords and discover new connections found in the top results. This tool takes the titles, subjects, and approximately the first 100 words from a subset of your top results and feeds them into an algorithm. Keywords shown in the graphics are those found most often in the text with your search term. The topic for “Illinois” might bring up expected connections from the text like “Chicago,” along with unexpected but commonly related terms like “water,” “steel,” and the names of people who appear frequently in documents about Illinois.
This Database is provided by the NovelNY program, and only works in New York State.
Refining our keywords is something we do all of the time in our everyday lives. For example, does "open" = "hours"?
Research is intuitive, but to make it academic, slow down and assess your own intuition!
