Thank you for contacting the library.  You have multiple options to choose from.  You can do a basic search using the St. Leo catalog: and in the search box type in "Aileen Wuornos".  There will be 26 results that will show up both physical print and eletronically both books and journals.  Hopefully one will help you.  Your other option is to go through our multiple databases to see if they return more results to your liking. Here's how you would search using two of our databases:

EBSCO Database

Go to our library web page at
Scroll down and click on “Databases.”
Select EBSCO; this will take you to the EBSCO login page.
To login enter your SLU username [first name.last name] and the password that you use for your SLU email.
Select All EBSCOhost Reference Databases.
Check the boxes next to Academic Search Complete and any other databases that seem relevant to your topic, including  eBook Academic Collection and eBook Collection 
Click on the Continue button at the bottom of the page.
Under Limit your results check Full text and Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals
Near the top of the page there’s a search box where can put the search terms of your choice.  Such as Aileen Wuornos
Then click on “Search.”

It will bring you many full text articles/books of your choice.  If you don't get the results you're looking for, or too many, try other relevant terms.

To Find Articles Using ProQuest Databases

From our library web page,
Select “Databases.”
Select “ProQuest.”
Log in (using your SLU username [first name.last name] and password that you use for your SLU email).
Check the “Full-Text” box and the “Peer-Reviewed” box, if desired.)
Enter keywords for your topic in the search boxes, separating terms by AND, OR, or NOT.
