To search for peer reviewed journal articles begin at the A.J. Eastwood Library home page ( and select the first link for SEARCH EVERYTHING. You can then search with these suggested terms:

Critical race theory, race awareness, interracial marriage, racial socialization

Or create a string or search terms such as:

In addition to SEARCH EVERYTHING, you may want to search individual databases such as SOCIndex, The Journal of Social Work Education, Social Sciences Full Text, and Psychology and Behavioral Sciences collection. All databases offered through A.J. Eastwood Library are located in the All Database LibGuide(
