Finding Scholarly Articles & Books

Don't forget to search the LIBRARY CATALOG (the search box in the middle of the library's home page) to help you find books, videos, articles related to your topic.

Finding Grey Literature

Grey literature includes things such as reports, white papers, policy documents -- things not published in traditional academic sources like books and journal articles.  These are often written by staff members/experts at NGOs, government agencies, think tanks, etc. and can provide valuable information.  

You can find grey literature in a number of places including:

  • On an organization's website (e.g. the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention  has many reports, documents and data sets available on its website).
