New to your topic? Don't know where to start?
A helpful first step is to get a broad overview of your topic by searching an encyclopedia.
The following are urban studies encyclopedias written by scholars in the field. Reference works like encyclopedias provide a broad overview of a particular topic and can provide ideas for further narrowing a topic and coming up with different search terms.
Wikipedia is another great place to start your research to get a broad over view of a topic. Be aware that since it can be edited by anyone, not just scholars, it may contain erroneous and biased information about a topic.
List generated by Google Scholar Metrics
Google Scholar offers the ability to link directly to University Library resources. With this feature, you can search Google Scholar to obtain the full text of articles and other electronic materials carried by the University Library. Once configured, Google Scholar will offer a link in the results list "Full Text at CSUN" for items that can be accessed through the CSUN Library. Off-campus access to these items is limited to current CSUN students, faculty, and staff. You only need to set up this configuration once for each computer you use.
