For this class you will need to find and use scholarly secondary sources: those written by scholars and published in peer-reviewed journals or books.
Interdisciplinary databases are especially useful for topics that cross disciplinary boundaries, like the ones in this course. These databases tend to be larger and will cast a wider net, so you might need to do more scanning and filtering to find relevant results.
You'll get fewer results when searching these subject specific databases, as you're searching a more focused collection of content. You'll also notice different language used as well as the different points of emphasis, approaches, and methodologies, when moving between these discourse communities.
You can find the full text of many articles, chapters, and books by searching their titles (in quotation marks works best) in Library Search on the homepage of the library's website.
If you cannot find an article this way, search for the publication title in the Electronic Journals List and browse your way to the article
