DVST 355: Homelessness and Poverty: Books, DVDs and Videos

Books, DVDs and Videos in the Library

Books are good starting points for research.  They may be available in print or online, and can help you refine your topic and select words and phrases (search terms) to use in your searches.

Use the Library Catalogue to find books on your topic.  Start with a KEYWORD search using words and phrases that describe your topic.  When you find a book that addresses your topic well, make note of the SUBJECTS assigned to it. They will be useful in finding more information on the same topic. 

Here are a few subjects on the topic of homelessness, poverty and mental illness to get you started.  Do a SUBJECT search in the Library Catalogue to find books, DVDs and other materials in the Douglas College Library:

  Homelessness Homeless persons Homeless youth    
              Public housing Shelters for the homeless Low income housing
