WGST 101: Feminist Theory

This guide is designed to help you find resources for your digital video project on a feminist theory or concept.

Find Journal Articles on your topic

The easiest way to find articles from scholarly journals on your topic is to use a library database.

Note: If searching from off-campus, you will need to input your name and library barcode number (from the back of your access card) to use any library database.

Some of the databases you can use for your project are listed below: 


Searching Strategies

Choose a database from the list above

  Enter keywords describing your topic.  For example:  

     Third wave feminism
     Post-colonial feminism

      Marxist feminism

You can use an asterisk to pick up different endings of a word.  For example, feminis* would search for feminist, feminists, as well as feminism. 

Getting the full-text of database articles:

1. If the database you are using has the full-text article, just  click on the link (pdf or htmil).

2. If the full-text is not available, click on Find It@SCU Libraries:

  • Is the article available in another database (e.g., Wilson OmniFile, JSTOR)? If so, click on the link and follow the citation information (e.g., volume, issue, date of publication, etc.)
  • Does the library have this journal in print? Go to the OSCAR record and request the issue you need from the ARS.
  • If the library doesn't have access to the full-text of the article, you will be offered the option of ordering it through the interlibrary loan service (which is free).
