    For further information, a listing of Sociology & Anthropology sources is available on the Schurz Library webpages. 


    Finding key words

    Finding good search words is often the most difficult part of the search process.

    For example, if my search is about the concepts of gender and income, I might also find information under these search words:

    Gender Income
    Female Wages
    Women Low-income
    Male Socioeconomic
    Men Poor

    Look carefully at the subject terms listed in the journal record when you're searching for articles to see what words the authors and the database have listed there.


    Narrowing and expanding searches

    You can NARROW searches by using the Boolean operator AND, as noted in the above examples.

    You can EXPAND searches by using the Boolean operator OR. For example:

    (income or wages) and gender

    You can also narrow searches by using limiters in the database, such as date, full-text, scholarly (peer-reviewed), etc.
