Why Use This Research Guide?

Increasingly, scholars are studying mixed race topics and publishing articles, books, websites, and other media related to mixed race experiences. Finding these materials can be challenging, however, because of:

  • a lack of standardized language describing mixed race issues and people
  • every database uses its own set of vocabulary to describe mixed race
  • indexers don't always apply mixed race terms to relevant materials

This guide will help you navigate these issues, and suggest sample search syntax focused on each scholarly database, and suggest selected resources (articles, books, videos, etc.) to explore.
