In this example, I know my term paper needs to be archaeology-related, but I haven’t decided on a topic yet. Starting at the ACI homepage, I’ll start typing in the term archaeology. Because there is a Library of Congress subject heading for archaeology, that appears as a search suggestion – along with some archaeology blogs – below my search box. I’ll click on that search suggestion so that I can browse those blogs that have archaeology as a major topic.
A will let me curate a collection of posts that I can then easily organize or share, so I’ll also create a list with the title Archaeology: Term Paper, a few tags, and a brief description of why I’m curating this list. I don’t want it searchable to all ACI users just yet, so I’ll set it to Private for now. (I can still share the list with my professor, and if I were using my university’s subscription, I would also have the option of sharing it with other students and faculty at my school.)
