CCST 100: Growing Up Cross-Culturally

What is Catalyst?

Catalyst is a new, simple way to search across the library catalog and nearly a billion articles, videos, reference books and more at once. You can search for articles and books at the same time, across all subjects. 

Start with Catalyst when you are beginning your research, doing interdisciplinary searching, or looking for a specific book or article by title.

The Catalyst search box is front and center on the library homepage.

Getting Started

A great place to start is a reference source. These are written for an academic audience and the best entries are those that give you clues about where you might look next (other entries, similar names, and especially "further reading").

 

Finding Articles

Remember to try keyword searches, examine the information for relevant looking articles, and make notes about the subject terms that you find there. Then you can do a combination of subject and keyword searching. If you should find an article that looks good but does not have the full text attached, click the "Find It" button to see if we have that article elsewhere at Carleton. Remember that you can instantly limit most searches so that you get only scholarly articles.

Do We Have That Article?

Article citations generally have an author's name, an article title (in quotation marks), a journal title (in italics), volume and issue numbers, a year of publication, and page numbers.

  1. Use the Journals tab on the library's website (or the link below) to see if we have access to the Journal (the name in italics) you need, and that we have access to the year you need.
  2. If we don't, order the article (using the "request a photocopy" form) via Interlibrary Loan and we'll get it to you from another library as quickly as possible (generally a few days to a week).
