Don't start a project without first gathering the tools you'll need.
Your 3 Library Accounts: Access these accounts under 'My Accounts' on the ASU Library home page, http://lib.asu.edu
You'll be searching many databases multiple times and with different search strategies - keeping track of what you need to do as well as what you've already done will eliminate redundancies and prevent missing steps. Don't forget to keep track of alerts/feeds/saved searches as well.
Try the Keeping Current Library Guide for easy ways to keep up with new articles on your topic using alerts, feeds, and saved searches. Let the databases and journals do the work for you. All you'll have to do is read.
Use what ever "keeping track" method works best for you - paper or software.
