WRI 123/124: Fight the Power

The resources I've pulled together for this guide will be helpful to get you started on your research journey.


Articles+ is what librarian call a federated database, which means that it searches many, many databases across disciplines. It's a great first start if you are not familiar with the databases for a particular discipline and usually returns more than enough results for a writing seminar paper. 

The name is slightly deceiving because in addition to scholarly journal articles Articles+ also has book chapters, newspaper articles, e-books, conference proceedings, book reviews, datasets, government documents, media, etc. It, however, would not be my first stop for items other than scholarly journals articles. 

Hot Tips for Articles+

  • Use the bookmark feature and email yourself the list of results. You'll get the direct links to all the articles.
  • Use the filters on the side to narrow down your options (like online shopping when you know you want a sweater, size medium in blue).
