Keyword searches may be built by using the connectors "and" and "or" in your searches of the databases.
Using "and" will narrow the results to articles/records in the databases that contain both, or all the terms in your search.
Example: slavery and power will retrieve records mentioning both terms Other examples: novel and film adaption; music and culture fate and theme
Using "or" will enlarge your search as either term will be retrieved
Connectors may be used in the same search Example (film or cinema or movie) and (fate as a theme) and (youth or childhood)
These databases include newspapers, general publications, and some academic/scholarly publications that focus on the area of ethnic studies, women studies and LGBTQ studies.
