Your best bet is to go to the Multiple topics page in the databases guide and try the databases listed there. The best two to try first actually search multiple databases in EBSCO or ProQuest:
All Popular EBSCO

- Type in your topic.

- Click on Subject: Thesaurus Term to see all options, choose if you see on that fits your topics, or try Subject.
- Click on Subject to see all options, choose if you see on that fits your topics.
- Full Text is a good option for any search that lets you eliminate all results that don't include the actual article online.
- Choose Research Library from the Multiple Topics (link below) page.
- Type in your topic.You will have so many results, you'll need to use the techniques described in the Save Time on Result List box (link below).You will have so many results, you'll need to use these techniques to save time:
- Full Text
Select Full text included to limit to articles with full text online.
- Source Type
You can easily narrow down to academic or scholarly resources if your instructor requires it by selecting Scholarly Journals.
- Document Type
This is an easy way to limit your search to things like audio/video, biographies, case studies, commentary, editorials, government documents, interviews, speeches, statistics, transcripts, and more.
Save a lot of time by selecting a subject. This will eliminate articles that just mention your topic, but are not mainly about your topic.
