English 391W: Dreams

Research Databases

April 7, 2010 · No Comments

There are a few research databases that will be particularly helpful as you develop your projects. To look for literary criticism on your topic, use the MLA International Bibliography. For articles about psychological research, use PsycInfo. For articles focused particularly on dreams and dreaming, try the International Association for the Study of Dream (IASD) journal Dreaming. For general searches, try both Project Muse and JSTOR.

You should all be using at least two or three of these databases, depending on your projects. For most of you, it’s a good idea to search all of them and see what you come up with. Your sources can make or break your topic, because they determine what you can learn about it, and that determines what you can write about it.

Finally, it’s also a good idea just to look around the IASD site and see if you can find materials related to your topic.
