Answer

You have a few choice you can either look for them using the library catalog (https://saintleo.worldcat.org/) or using one of our many databases. Racial discrimination is a good but can be a very broad topic.  You may want to think of other terms to help narrow it down.

Here are a few instructions:

Library Catalog:

From our library homepage at http://slulibrary.saintleo.edu/ type your search term in the large search box. You can try different search terms as needed. You can then limit the results to peer-reviewed in the left column of the results screen. If you are prompted to sign-in, use your Saint Leo username and password that you use for the my.saintleo.edu portal.

Journal Articles - EBSCO Database

Go to our library web page at http://slulibrary.saintleo.edu

Click on Find an Article, under “Quick Links.”

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 and check "Select / deselect all"

Click on the Continue button at the bottom of the page. Click on Advanced Search under the search box. Scroll down the page and check the boxes Full-Text and Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed , if desired. Enter your search terms, separating phrases by AND, OR, or NOT and then click on “Search.”

Click on the “PDF Full Text” or “HTML” icons to view the article. If you don't get the results you're looking for, or too many, try other relevant terms.

Journal Articles – ProQuest Database Go to our library homepage at http://slulibrary.saintleo.edu Click the Find an Article tab Select ProQuest. Type your search terms: separated by AND, OR, or NOT Select "Full text" and "Peer reviewed" Select the magnifying glass and you should receive results. Narrow the results by publication date to the most recent 5 or so years, if desired, by clicking on the lever in the left side of the screen (under the green bars) and pulling it to the right, and click Update. You can limit it further by document type: select more options; then case studies or reports, etc.
