I think it is hard to think of what words to use for a search the first time you do it. You have to really do some trial and error to figure out how the search engines really work and what words you are going to put in to get what you want. I was initially searching for “teenage drug influence from media”, but I changed the search to “teen drug influence” and found that I had found more articles that pertained to my topic. The results that I received from Google were a lot more broad than the results I received from CUNY+.
