INTRNAR 200: Issues and Inquiry in International Studies: Home/Books

An online course guide for finding library and online resources for use with International Studies 200

Books

Search for Andersen Library's books, both online and in print, using Research@UWW's "Books, Media, and more (UW Whitewater)." Searches may be for individual countries or regions, e.g.,

iran AND politics

"middle east" AND government

"arab countries" AND "foreign relations"

Search Books, Media, & More @ UWW

AND, OR, * in searches

Venn diagram showing what using AND command between search words does: require the presence of ALL search words in each item found

 Venn diagram showing what using OR comand between search words does: requires at least one of the words to appear in each item found. OR is often used for synonyms for an idea or concept.

 Illustration of using a truncation symbol on the end of a word or word stem to have variable endings in your search results. In most databases truncate with * (asterisk), but in LexisNexis use ! (excalamation mark). It's the alternative to using OR between every possible variation, e.g., child* finds child childish childbearing children etc.

General Resources

Research@UWW  searches for "Everything" (articles, books, ebooks, videos, digital resources, government documents, etc.) from all disciplines. You also can search articles only or the local catalog only, i.e., UWW's books, media, and more.

Google Scholar can help you find both books and articles, but if you use it from off campus, configure the settings to access full text in Andersen Library's subscription databases.

Google Books can help you find books, read a summary of what the book discusses, and sometimes it allows you to search within the text and read portions of the text online.

A to Z Databases, Andersen Library's subscription databases, help you find articles (and sometimes other things like dissertations).

Reference Universe looks for entries in reference books (encyclopedias, handbooks, etc.), whether online or in print. Helpful for understanding unfamiliar terminology!

Find Journals is used to search for a particular journal, magazine or newspaper by title. The Library has access to thousands of titles, some online and some not.

Working Off Campus

When using licensed resources from off-campus, you'll be prompted to log into the proxy server with your UWW Net-ID and password (same as your UWW e-mail & D2L login). The Troubleshooting page may help if you have any difficulties (one option is using VPN (Virtual Private Network) to access campus and library services).
