Getting Started with Background Sources

Before getting started with policy research, it is a good idea to start with some background and context to the issues you are investigating. The sources below will help you get to that information quickly.

Finding Books and more

Use the Online Catalog to locate books and ebooks. Here are some search tips:

  • "Climate Change" (use quotes whenever you search a phrase for better results)
  • "Water Policy" Israel (add in the country or region as a search term for more targeted results)
  • Econom* Recycling (truncate words with the * to include any ending - this would get you economY and economIC) 
  • Ecotourism (the more specific you can be with your terms the better!) 
  • "Keystone Pipeline" (Proper nouns in quotes will always be more specific search terms) 

Scholarly Journal Articles

These databases (listed in the order of likelihood they will be useful to you) will get you to news and scholarly journal articles on environmental and sustainability issues. Watch our short video on finding scholarly articles using our subject databases for tips and tricks.
