CORE 1000: Global Citizenship: Rights and Responsibilities in an Interconnected World

Research guide for students in Dr. Charles Parker's Ignite Seminar: Global Citizenship: Rights and Responsibilities in an Interconnected World (Fall 2022)

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. 

Note that on the Advanced Search page in SLUth, you can choose which academic discipline(s) you'd like to find sources from. See screenshot below. This tends to work best for results that are academic journals articles. It's not foolproof though! You'll still need to make your own determination about the disciplinary perspective of a given source.

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!
