You can find the Library's databases on the A-Z Databases page.
Databases are grouped into subject areas. The Humanities, Social Work & Human Services will be particularly useful for your study.
The Library also has a range of News & Current Affairs databases that will be useful when locating a piece of media about your social movement for Assessment Item 3.
Primo Search searches broadly across the majority of the Library's collection and has a range of in-built refining options that makes narrowing your results quite easy. However, since Primo Search is searching the whole collection, it can yield results related to other disciplines.
Journal databases generally provide access to resources that are similar in topic so searching within a journal database can be an effective way to locate discipline-specific resources.
2. Try the recommended databases in the yellow box at the top of the databases page.
3. Expand the database description to learn more about the databases main subject areas. This will help you determine a useful database to search within.
4. Consider using a database from another subject area if your assessment includes multi-disciplinary concepts.
Once you've found a database you want to use, try typing your same keywords into the search.
Sometimes you will read that a database is 'full text', or that an article can be found in 'full text'. 'Full text' means that the entire document is available online. When a database carries an article in full text there will be a hyperlink to view it as either a PDF or html document. Not all journal databases contain full text.
If an article is not available in full text you may be able to locate it in another database. Clicking on the button will allow you to check if the article is available elsewhere.
