The best place to find articles is to search the library's databases. They contain magazines, journals, newspapers, reference books, video files, audio files, and podcasts.
What databases will be the best for this project?
You can search any of the Databases for Social Sciences.
Kirtland librarians recommend the following:
An InfoTrac Power Search will search many databases at once.
Some journal articles are peer reviewed (also known as Refereed). Peer reviewed articles carry more authority than other articles because their content has been reviewed by subject experts prior to publication. Databases allow you to limit your search to peer reviewed materials, or as in the example below, by a refereed article. By doing so, you assure that the resources you are using are reliable and acceptable for scholarly work.
You may not always have the option to limit your results to peer reviewed articles on the first screen. You might need to do an advanced search or complete a search and then select peer reviewed on the results screen.
Watch segments or entire documentaries and educational films.
Many titles provide transcripts (look at the tabs in the box to the right) which can be helpful when citing. Some also allow searching within a transcript to more easily find relevant information, however you need to scroll through the transcript to look for highlighted terms. It does not automatically jump to them.
