Q. I am working a research paper for my sociology class and my topic is child slavery.

I would like to know which databases would be good to search for related articles

Answer

I recommend starting at the library research guide for sociology found here: http://library.uhd.edu/sociology.  On the guide you will find the best resources for finding articles, books, film, and statistics in social science topics.  

The first recommended database is SOCIndex.  Try using the search terms

child AND slavery 

Child AND slaves

Child AND slave trade

Once you are on the results page, look to the column on your left for the heading SUBJECT. If you click on this term, you may find some other helpful search terms for your topic.  

The library has several films on the topic available both streaming and on DVD.  

1) Go to the library home page here: https://www.uhd.edu/library/Pages/library-index.aspx

2) Click on the CATALOG tab.

3) Click on the link to Advanced Search

4) On this screen, try the search term "child slave trade" and from the Add Limits box under Material Type, choose VIDEO.
