Subject heading: Women's studies-- Encyclopedias .

Examples:

Oxford Encyclopedia of Women in World History (Online) – search for immigrant – overview article on immigrant labour

Primary Sources Catalogue: (diar? letter? autobio? correspondence? oral? Interview? experience? personal narrative?) AND (immigr? migr?) AND (wom?n) Database: North American Immigrant Letters, Diaries and Oral Histories: Organized by Nationality Subjects eg. Women in workforce

Database search strategy #The concept of women is redundant in women’s studies databases Some databases allow automatic stemming in the place of truncation Social emmigrat* Identit* Country or province Geographical Political Cultural Economical (labour or work*) Aspect Refugee or asylum seeker Migrant* Immigra* immigrant Construct* Perspective Represent* Experience* Synonyms Concept#

Studies on Women and Gender abstracts ( immigrant+ OR refugee+ ) AND ( experience+ OR perspective+ OR representation+ OR construction+ OR identity+ ) – retrieves 42 Automatically searches for variants (hence no need to truncate) when “stemming” is selected

Women’s studies international ( immigrant OR refugee ) AND ( experience OR perspective OR representation OR construction OR identity)  - 2899 (key words - too many hits) TX ( Immigrant experience OR Immigrant women's attitudes ) and TX ( Migrant women OR refugee women )  - 29 (descriptors – manageable recall)

Contemporary Women’s Issues 1) Immigrant* AND experience (keywords alone with no limits) - 1346 2) experience* OR perspective OR represent* OR construct* OR identit* (keywords) immigrants and refugees AND images of women (subject areas) – 19 Additional limits - country

Sociological abstracts DE=(wom*n or females ) and DE=( immigr * or refugee or migrant *) and AB=( experience * or perspective * or ( identit * or represent * or construct *)) and DE=( work * or lab*r or employ *) and ( filipina or philipines ) – 62 For sociological perspective, it’s useful to add a topic (eg. Work) and geographical perspective

Psychinfo SU ( experiences OR events ) and SU females and SU ( immigration OR refugees OR migrants )  subject headings only to manage recall - 46

Internet Sources: Intute
