  • Enter your search terms and propaganda in the search box on the Search Google Scholar tab on the library home page. Google Scholar doesn’t have a limiter or filter for peer-reviewed, but the articles are drawn from scholarly websites around the world.

 

So how do you know the other search terms?

Let’s say you’re researching the workers’ strike at Gdansk in 1980. Lech Walesa emerged as the leader of the striking workers group (Solidarity) and later became president of Poland. Both Solidarity and the Polish government circulated propaganda.

Two possible searches would be:

propaganda walesa solidarity

propaganda gdansk strike
