Keywords and Subject Headings

As you generate search terms, it will be helpful to prepare a list that includes keywords (important words or phrases) and subject headings (which are like pre-assigned tags for articles). You can find inspiration for keywords within the text of an article, book, etc. You can find examples of subject headings while browsing search results in a periodical database. 

Keywords are important words or phrases within text. Subject headings are specific vocabulary assigned by database indexers.
