In your journals, create a concept map similar to the one in the picture.
Part 1: Think of a main topic and write it in the center of the page, circled. Brainstorm for subtopics of the main topic and write those in circles surrounding the main topic. Continue subdividing those subtopics until you have at least ten—yours does not need to be as detailed as the one in the picture.
Part 2: Use URSUS to identify Library of Congress Subject Headings that correspond to the ten subtopics. List them in your journal. If you can't find exact matches, that is okay.
EXAMPLE: concept keywords: no milk allergies;
subject heading: Food allergy
concept keywords: no milk allergies; subject heading: Food allergy
