List key research resources for students who are pursuing Master's Interdisciplinary Program in Disability Studies.

SELECTED Databases

Disability Studies covers highly interdisciplinary topics.  The variety of academic databases held in the U of M Libraries offers students many options to explore their potential sources for their research and studies.  Beyond the databases listed above, you can explore other potntial databases by visiting Database A-Z  and searching by keyword(s). If you need any further assistance, please consult Asako Yoshida, your liaison librarian, (204) 227-3587,


Google or Google Scholar

Both Google and Google Scholar are useful searching tools for Disability Studies students.  In particular, when you are looking for grey literature and not necessarily academic publications, Google Scholar is very useful.  Google Scholar is also useful locating government documents, research publications from research centers or non-profit organizations, as well as academic scholarly publications.

If you want to gather and manage the research sources identified by searching Google Scholar, please go directly to Google Scholar, instead of accessing it from the Google Scholar button made available from the University of Manitoba Libraries web page.

You can configure your Google account to synchronize with the University of Manitoba Libraries as follows:

  1. Visit Google Scholar page.
  2. Click Settings from the top navigation bar menu.
  3. Click Library Links from the left column.
  4. In the Search Box, type in "Manitoba." (No quotation marks.)
  5. Select "University of Manitoba - Get It @ UML."
  6. Click Back-Page arrow on the browser and configure Bibliography Manager (at the bottom of the page) to forward to the bibliographical management tool of your choice.


Explore Library Access, a browser extension to get to the full text materials held by the Libraries regardless of where you are on the web.
