Database Search Tips:
  • "Quotes" for phrases/titles:
    • "A Room of One's Own" "transnational feminism"
  • Asterisk (*) for truncation:
    • feminis* = feminist feminis
  • AND for different concepts:
    • intersectionality AND Indigenous AND Canada
  • OR for similar concepts/synonyms:
    • teen* OR adolescen* OR youth

Example: intersectionality AND "racial bias" AND (universit* OR college)



Look at what you find and determine if it’s a quality source. Does it work for your assignment, or do you need to go back and find more?
