COVID-19 Update: Although the Gould Library building remains closed, the library staff continue our commitment to support the teaching and research needs of the Carleton community. Information on remote access to library resources and services will be updated regularly on the Remote Resources and Guidance for Library Users page and this FAQ.

SOAN 231 Transnational Migration and Diasporic Communities [ARCHIVED]

Page no longer updated but still useful

This course is no longer being taught, but because this is a common research topic, I have left the guide posted. The suggested books list and online research sources are especially helpful. Please contact me if you have questions. 

General Research Resources

Here are some shortcuts to important library resources.

About this Guide

This research guide brings together resources for students taking Professor Van Dusenbery's Transnational Migration and Diasporic Communities class, SOAN 231, winter 2012.

If you would like to have a discussion with me about your research topic, searching for data, the literature review process, or organizing the process, just check my schedule for a time we're both available, then let me know what time to set aside.  My office is Libe 466 and I can be reached by email, chat, phone, or just drop by.

When the Library Doesn't Have What You Want

When you need to read an article, working paper, or book but you can't find it in the Libe's collections, you have more options than pulling out your wallet. The Inter-Library Loan (ILL) service makes it possible for the library to borrow materials from other libraries for you to use.

Look for links to ILL or Illiad (which is the name of our ILL software) from article databases, which will lead you to a request form. You can also go directly to ILL from the library web site (home page > login/your accounts > InterLibrary Loan), where you can also check the status of your requests. Articles take a few days and books around a week. You'll get an email when your item is ready.
