Find Scholarly Secondary Sources

The best place to start your research is SLUth Search Plus. It includes articles published in scholarly journals, magazines, and newspapers as well as books and ebooks. It's multidisciplinary, so you can use it to find credible sources of information on any topic. It includes about 1/4 of the SLU Libraries subscription databases and the SLU Libraries Catalog. 

Some sources will include full-text, but others will include the Find it @ SLU button which links to full-text when available and if not available, gives you the option to request articles for free through Interlibrary Loan's ILLiad service.

Learn how to use SLUth Search Plus by watching this short video.

If you're specifically looking for books in the SLU Libraries, you may find that searching the SLU Libraries Catalog is easier than searching SLUth Search Plus. Remember, you don't need to read the whole book to use it! Use the table of contents and index to find relevant chapters!
