CORE 192: War, Peace, and Nonresistance (Joe Liechty): Finding a Comparative Book and Articles

Finding a Comparative Book and peer-review articles Hints and Tips

Once you find a book you want to use, finding a comparative book and peer review articles is farily easy.

1) Look up your book in the catalog

2) Look at the catalog entry for your book.  Click on Description. Look for the "Subjects".  Most of the books and articles in our catalog have been assigned subjects.  Clicking on a subject will bring up other books and articles on that subject.  [Note: Now is a good time to consult the :Other Suggestions" list below.] 

 Also, see if your book has a list of references in the back.  You can often find other books and articles by consulting this list.

 

Other Suggestions:

  • when you click on a subject, limit your results to peer-reviewed (works well with articles
  • sort by Relevance not Library and Relevance (use this when you can get items through Inter Library Loan)  
  • do not be afraid of Inter Library Loan.  It is easy to do.  Just click the Request Item link in the record.
