Practice

Find Books using WorldCat

  • Search WorldCat to find a book about feminism and the Middle East. 
  • Limit your search to materials published in the past 10 years.
  • Note the title of the book.  Is it an ebook or a physical book in the library's collection?  If it's a physical book, you would need the call number in order to find it on the shelf.

Find Articles using Databases

  • Search JSTOR for an article or book chapter about women's rights in the Middle East.
  • Practice limiting your search to narrow your results.  
  • Next, try your search in the Research Library database.
