There are two resources you can use for this type of research: Web of Science and Google Scholar.  Web of Science is a library database and you must be logged into your mySNHU account to access it.  Google Scholar is a free resource. To illustrate how they work, here is a sample title search in both databases.  Our sample title is “The hunt for disability: The new eugenics and the normalization of school children.”
