GWS 370: Sex Trafficking

Gender & Women's Studies Databases

These databases are specific to women's topics and issues.

General and Subject-Specific Library Databases

In addition to the databases listed above, the following list has a variety of both general and subject specific databases which will support your research on your topics related to sex trafficking.

Any subject database can offer valuable resources, so think about the subject discipline that your research topic intersects with (Humanities, Social Science, Health Sciences, etc.) and use the Advanced Search mode, which offers more than one searching field. Just as with searching books and reference materials, you will likely combine terms, such as:

women and sex trafficking, women and human trafficking, human trafficking and United States, "women" and "slavery" and "sex", etc...

Search Connectors (Boolean operators)

Search connectors such as "AND", "OR", and "NOT" help you narrow down your search and identify the most relevant articles.

Use "AND" to retrieve articles on more than one keyword. Use "OR" to retrieve articles on either one of your desired terms or both. Use "NOT" to exclude the information that you do not need.  

Limiting by publication year, type of article, document type, or physical description can also help you find relevant articles.
