Sociology: Find Articles

This is a research guide for Sociology resources through the Harold B. Lee Library.

Tips for searching databases

1. Identify key terms for your topic
2. Select appropriate search fields for your terms
3. Use Boolean Operators (AND, OR, NOT) to broaden or narrow your search
      i. AND is used to NARROW your search, combining two or more search topics
      ii. OR is used to BROADEN your search results
      iii. NOT is to ELIMINATE unwanted search results
4. To narrow your results further, explore the different databases and to find where you can adjust the date, request only peer-review articles, etc.
5. To include all variations of a word in your search, truncate terms by placing an asterisk (*) after the common root
      i. For example, famil* would search for family and families.
