Start by using a database within our online library.  For topics about money and banking, try one of the following databases:

Business Source Complete via EBSCO

Business via ProQuest

Use keywords to search the databases:
  • Use the * symbol to tell the database to search for various endings to a word.  (regulat*  searches the database for regulate, regulation, regulations, regulated, regulating...)
  • Use quotation marks around phrases within your search terms, such as "depository institutions"
  • See screenshot below:

If you're getting too many results or results which are not really about your topic, use the limiters within the database.  You can limit by date, source type, or subject.  You can use Boolean operators for a more precise search.
