Finding Books and Articles

Finding Books

To find books on your selected country and the processes through which it has become integrated into the contemporary global order, use the Books & Media tab on the Library homepage. In addition to using the name of your country as a search term, you should consider using one or more of the additional terms in the column to the left.

If you've identified a (paper format) book you want, this floor plan/map will indicate where it is located in the Library.


Finding Articles

For this assignment you are being asked to use articles published in academic sources - these are typically referred to as peer-reviewed scholarly journals. The Cheng Library offers several databases that can provide these for you. In addition, you can also use a customize Library link to the Google Scholar search engine to get access to articles from many of the Library's subscription journals.
