Finding Additional Scholarly Resources

SuperSearch is a good starting point for finding additional resources. It lets you find books and other tangible resources at both the Cowles and Law Libraries. It also includes content from many, but not all, of the libraries' databases.

Librarians can provide additional search guidance. Current Drake faculty, staff, and students: use your Drake email account to email us a request for reference assistance. (PC/Mac/Android user link. iPhone/iPad user link.) Librarians will respond during business hours.

Suggested Search Terms

If you click on the subject headings below, you will see the results of that search in SuperSearch. However, you might also want to use these terms in your own search, either as keywords or in combination with each other.

Some additional tools follow.

Social Media

Listening is the start of understanding. Social media posts are one way to "listen" to the words and experiences of a wide variety of people, including those who may not look like you.
