Often times you want a more particular collection of articles directly relevant to gender and sexuality studies. Databases are often themed, and as such are less likely to provide articles entirely unrelated to your topic. They also sometimes provide useful information about authors, and article statistics. If you’re looking for scholarship on and/or by Indigiqueer or Two-Spirit people the ProQuest Dissertations and Thesis database (in the General Databases section below) is the best place to look!
