Try searching these databases to retrieve articles and more. Depending on your area of research, relevant databases could fall into a variety of categories including anthropology, education, English, history, philosophy, political science, public administration, religious studies, social work, and sociology. Refer to West Chester Library's database page for a full list of available databases (print included).
Welcome to West Chester University Libraries' ethnic studies research page.To locate journal articles on your topic try searching the general databases (on the left) or hover over "Home-Multiethnic" tab above for more discipline-specific indexes listed on subpages for different ethnic groups. Websites and professional organizations, can also be found there.
A good way to begin research is to consult specialized encyclopedias and dictionaries. Subject encyclopedias provide basic background information about a topic; explain how your subject connects to others; present terminology to use in searches; and often have bibliographies that list key works. Also try searching a subject using one of the Reference databases ( see list on right side of this page).
