Choosing keywords

Choosing keywords for your search will always involve trial and error. If you start by searching for "small modular nuclear stationary power plant design", in many tools you'll get no results or just a few hits. Make your terms a bit more general: maybe start with "small modular nuclear plant" instead.

If you need to narrow results further, you can combine additional terms using AND: "small modular nuclear plant" AND "heat source" would be an example for Team #2.

When you find a good article, chapter, or technical report, look at the terms they use and consider searching again with those as keywords. Finding synonyms of your terms you haven't tried, or names of plants, companies, or government agencies can be really helpful in searching further.
