HST 102: Europe & the World in the Modern Era: Article Databases
The databases listed below may help you find and get access to newspaper articles, magazines articles, and scholarly journal articles about your topic. But how do you get started?
1. Choose keywords that describe your topic and consider how different authors might describe the same topic. For example: (Greece OR Greek) AND (debt OR "debt crisis" OR bailout)
2. Use the tools provided by the database to narrow your search by date, document type, and more.
3. Read the abstract or summary of the article to decide if it is relevant to your topic. If it is, make sure to save it! ZSR recommends saving it to Zotero (which will also help you cite it later in your paper!).
