Your research for this project should include a mix of sources: scholarly journal articles, primary source materials, and magazine/newspaper articles. For scholarly sources try the
Gale Student Resource Center In Contex
. Remember: USE THE ADVANCED SEARCH FEATURE for more control over your searches. Also remember to use the bibliographies of sources that you have consulted to further your research and to collect helpful and "on target" articles.
Also, rely on your keyword vocabulary to formulate your searches. Don't stay locked in on one search term. Vary your searches. So, for example, if you were researching images of women in advertising a different search phrase you could use would be "gender AND advertising" . Brainstorm your topic and come up with synonyms, related terms that will expand your search.
Finally, if you want to limit your internet searches to a specific domain (.edu,.gov, .org etc.) you can in a Google search for example type in the search:
site:.edu gender AND advertising
this will bring back results only from .edu web addresses.
