  • Use the word AND to link concepts together: cardboard AND mulch
  • Use the word OR with parentheses to search for synonyms: cardboard AND (mulch OR compost)
  • Use quotation marks to search for a specific phrase: “Waste Reduction Model”
  • Use an asterisk to search for multiple endings of a root word: reduc* - to find reduce, reducing, reduction

When searching Google, try adding the following to your topical keywords:
