CORE 1000: The Art of Political Education

Research guide for students in Ilene Berman's Ignite Seminar: The Art of Political Education (Fall 2022)

Find Background Information

Find Secondary Sources

The best place to start your research is SLUth Search Plus. SLUth includes articles published in scholarly journals, magazines, and newspapers as well as books, and ebooks. It's very multidisciplinary in scope, so you can use it to find credible sources of information on any topic. It includes about 100 of the SLU Libraries 400 (or so) subscription databases and the SLU Libraries Catalog. So, you're not searching everything the SLU Libraries have, but you're searching a lot. 

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!
