Choosing a research guide

As a student in ENGW 3315, Advanced Writing in the Disciplines, you may need to choose more than one subject guide to get an appropriate selection of  databases for multidisciplinary research. The Subject Guides list includes all subjects and will provide Key Resources in those subjects.

Key Resources for Scholarly Articles

Below is a selection of interdisciplinary databases to which the Library subscribes. You can also browse the complete list of databases on the library's home page.

Search tools

There are a number of approaches to searching:

Topic by chance--heard this on NPR, for example:

Antri-Racism and Diversity Library Guides

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racism are all important topics which cannot be properly discussed in one small section. Instead, this section serves to connect you to relevant research guides and webpages on these topics.

The Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Guide (DEI) seeks to connect students, staff, faculty and community members to resources related to DEI work that is available throughout Northeastern University Library, Northeastern University, and the surrounding community.

The Anti-Racism Guide seeks to connect students, staff, faculty, and community members to resources related to anti-racism work that are available through Northeastern University Library and Northeastern University.
