Religion and Politics

Course #: CT412J-BR

Library Databases


  • ATLA (an EbscoHost database)



Laurier articles via Google Scholar

  • Go to settings and click on “Library” (on the left side of the page)
  • Type in Laurier and search; make sure the link to it is checked; save these settings

Additional Tips:

  • Use a multi-pronged approach; search by using our Primo catalogue, the databases, Google Scholar, the bibliographies of articles you have found
  • Think of different terms for the same word (e.g. politics OR governance)
  • Use quotation marks when searching for two words that go together as a phrase (e.g. “Muslim brotherhood”)
  • Use an asterisk and the root of a word to get all forms of it (e. g. politi* will find the words political, politics, politician)
  • For scholarly articles, look for the “peer-review” option in the Primo catalogue and in the databases
  • If you search in our Primo articles, use the links (especially the “subject links” and “more options”) to narrow down your search
