Navajo Studies

Electronic Indexes and Fulltext Databases

San Juan College subscribes to many electronic indexes and fulltext databases. They can generally be searched by author, title, subject, and keyword. 

In a subject search, the database searches only the subject field. Subject headings (or descriptors) are approved terms that an indexer assigns to an article.

A keyword search searches every field of a citation (author, title, abstract, subject) and, in some cases, the fulltext of an article. These searches will often produce more results. For example, a keyword search for the term "Navajo" will look for every record that includes the term. Thus, it will pick up material about Navajo Dam or Navajo County, and not just the Navajo Nation.

For a tutorial on searching electronic databases, click here.

The following is a brief summary of some of the electronic databases and indexes that are likely to include material on Navajo Studies. If you find a citation to an article in a journal that San Juan College does not have, you can request it through InterLibrary Loan.

See the Reference Librarian about obtaining dissertation and theses through InterLibrary Loan.  There is no subject heading for Navajo. Keyword searches on "Navajo" and "Dineh" produced results.
