Finding scholarly literature

Using Search Everything

Using the default search on the Library website is not perfect, but knowing a few tips for ways to filter your results can help. 

  1. Choose keywords that represent the concepts you are looking for explicitly. For example the search "racism child welfare" will yield a ton of results, but many won't be relevant to your needs. If you add the words "intergenerational trauma", it will enhance the results to make them more relevant. 
  2. Use the Discipline/Subject filters to narrow your results to subject matter that is more relevant to Child and Youth Care:
    • Social Welfare and Social Work
    • Sociology and Social History
    • Education
    • Women's Studies
    • Gender Studies
    • Queer Theory
