Library databases

Search library databases to learn more about place, identity and community. Here's a good strategy to try on any of these databases:

  • Use words like AND to refine your search and quotation marks to search for a specific phrase.
    • Example: "social justice" AND Argentina
    • This will list articles with both the phrase "social justice" and the word "Argentina" appearing in them
    • Some databases allow you to refine your search, usually using "facets" (different categories, often on the left side of the list)
  • Browse the article titles for relevant ones that catch your eye
  • Select a few to read and learn more!

You can also see lists organized by subject. In Credo Reference, try browsing their list of topics, such as community. Or try searching for a place, like Philadelphia.
