Library Catalog

The library IS a good starting point.  Repeat after me:,,  

No need to Google it. is a good starting point for books

Let's practice converting a "keyword search "into a search using "controlled vocabulary" --the Library of Congress Subject Headings. For example, Obamacare, or Covid-19, or anything you'd like to try.

Alternatively, you can explore possible Library of Congress Subject Headings suggested by the Health Policy Librarian, Joann Donatiello.

In addition, for US information you can use CMS Centers for Medicare & Medicaid as an author.

Subject-specific databases (see Health Policy guide)

Google Scholar

Google Scholar on your text “Health disparities in the United States : social class, race, ethnicity, and the social determinants of health / Donald A. Barr.”

            Limit by recent and/or covid

 Example of Article Express for “Alarm at the Gate—Health and Social Inequalities are Comorbid Conditions of HIV and COVID-19
