Narrow your search terms to find more focused pieces of scholarly info on your analysis
Eg.) My original Kendrick Lamar search came up with multiple sources and it was hard to find one that spoke directly to my point, I narrowed the search to Kendrick Lamar’s literary background and found much more direct, concise articles on the subject
This can also go vice-verse, sometimes it is hard to find a scholarly source based on your literary topic. For many of the sites above the search Kendrick Lamar did not show very many sources, you may have to switch your search terms to something more general.
Eg.) Kendrick Lamar did not receive any feedback on some of these sites. So I switched my search term to East/West rap rivalry and then to Literary Rap Roots. These more general terms helped me to find background on my subjects rather than a very precise view.
