Finding Books And Articles Print Page


Bridge (or WorldCat)
Search books and materials owned by Carleton and St. Olaf (or, if you use WorldCat, thousands of libraries across the United States).

  • An author's name (last name first) will be the Subject of a work if that work is written about that author. Doing a subject search for the author's name will therefore show you biographies and works of criticism.
  • Scholarly biographies often include criticism. See if the biography has an index at the back of the book, and then check to see if the work you're looking for appears there.

Finding Demographics

  • American FactFinder
    Population, housing, economic, and geographic data from the American Census.

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.

  • Academic Search Premier
    A multi-disciplinary database of scholarly articles, newspaper articles, and magazine articles.
  • ProQuest
    Another multi-disciplinary database of scholarly, newspaper, and magazine articles. This database has many more newspaper sources than Academic Search Premier does.
  • ProQuest Newsstand Complete
    Even more newspaper sources! If you click "More Search Options" you'll be able to choose a "Document type" such as an editorial, cartoon, or cover story.
  • LexisNexis Academic
    Access to thousands of newspapers. Experiment with different collections of newspapers beyond the default "Major U.S. and World Publications." Even more options are available under the "News" tab.
