These databases, in addition to the biographical sources listed in the other tab, will help you find a scholarly articles. If you need help searching for articles or doing other research, ask a librarian - we're here to help you!
These are the searches that I like to try in databases or OneSearch:
Next, search OneSearch for the name of the poet and limit your search just to print books. Go to the section with books on your poet, and look for books of literary criticism (not books of poems). Check the book's table of contents and index for the name of the poem or collection, then skim that section of the book.
Wofford OneSearch is a single search platform that contains books, ebooks, journal articles, magazines, newspapers, audio, video, and reference materials. It is a great place to explore your topic and find scholarly resources, but it can sometimes be overwhelming due to the amount of information a normal search will pull up. Think of it like shopping on Amazon: you should tell OneSearch exactly what you're looking for using keywords and choosing the right limiters in the left column of your search results.
For example, a search for genetic engineering retrieves nearly 3 million results. You can narrow your search by adding additional keywords or using the limiters in the left column.
Choosing only scholarly and peer reviewed articles and limiting our results to articles published in the last 3 years reduces the number of articles to about 350,000.
Finally, we can add additional keywords to make our search more specific. Adding the keyword food to our search brings up scholarly articles published in the last three years about the genetic engineering of food. Play around with your keywords and limiters until you find articles or books that will work for your project.
When you find resources that you'd like to save, click on the folder icon next to the item. Your sources will be saved in a folder in the top right corner of OneSearch. Don't forget to email yourself the folder before you close your browser!
