Use Trove Advanced Search to combine more than one keyword or phrase or limit to specific year range. When viewing results use the Decade facet to further narrow by publication date/year (eg. 1950-1959)
Try these Australian databases first:
These other Australian databases cover more specific subject areas or types of content:
These international databases are useful for articles about overseas countries AND ALSO include some Australian coverage:
Tip: Just remember to add the limiting word 'australia' or "new south wales" etc. to your search if needed!
Some databases don't provide the fulltext of an item, only the citation and an abstract (summary) of its contents. This is especially common with older references. Check what type of publication it is (this should be mentioned in the database record) then:
If it's a journal/magazine/newspaper article:
Use the Title search in the Library's A-Z Journal List directory to look up the name of the journal the article is published in. eg. Australian Historical Studies. This will show if the Library holds that journal for the relevant year either fulltext in another database or in print (hard copy) in the Journals Collection (Level 2).
If it's a book chapter or conference paper:
Use the Title search in the Library Classic Catalogue or if that fails try the Keywords search option to look up the name of the book/conference the chapter/paper is published in. This will show if the Library holds it in hard copy.
If it's not held at UOW - don't forget to take advantage of the Library's ArticleReach service to see if you can request a copy of the article/chapter be emailed to you from another library!
