Resources for finding scholarly information

Advice for Getting Started

Do some general background searching first.

Decide how you're going to share information with your partner. Email, Google Doc, etc.

Make a list of questions, and/or a chart to keep track of what you find.

Questions to be answered...

What is the name of the indigenous group we'll be working with.

  • Are they known by any other names?
  • Where do they live? relation to others?
  • What is the size of their population and how has it changed over time?
  • What are the major concerns for this population of people? health, food, water, other?
  • Who represents this group? Do they have a leader, an organization, etc.?


You'd be surprised what you may have to use for a search term in a database. By writing down what you find as you go, you'll generate a list of keywords and search terms that will come in handy when trying to track down articles.
