Research Tools

GoogleScholar

My favorite starting place for searching scholarly books, journals, etc. Note that Google DOES NOT INDEX EVERYTHING. There are many relevant journals in the social sciences that do not show up in GoogleScholar. But it is a fast an efficient place to start.

Note that access to full text versions of most articles is not available unless you log in via your institution's online library and access sources to which they subscribe.

Some institutions (like UCLA) have a proxy server you can set up on your home computer. If you are lucky enough to know a student or faculty at a large university, the proxy server will automatically open all of Google Scholar's links and take you right into the associated database!
