Using Library Databases

Databases are searchable collections of reliable, vetted resources, like magazines, academic journals, newspapers, and encyclopedias. We pay for access to these resources through subscriptions--like Netflix, but for articles!

  • Vetted= already evaluated or fact-checked

A good search for articles on your topic might be:

  • (agricultural labor* OR migrant agricultural labor*)
    AND legal*
    AND (united states OR america)

You could also switch the word "legal*" for "rights" or "activis*".

The databases listed below are the best databases for your class.
