The most important thing to remember is that it may take several tries to find the right combination of words for your search. Academic writing uses a more formal language than we do in our day-to-day lives.
"working with people" could have subject terms like "group dynamics" or "interpersonal communication"
How do you find these more formal terms?
The Details tab in an article in Search at UW will have these formal words linked in red. You can also ask your librarian and the instructor for help!
