Q. How can I find articles that analyze the culture of Japan? Are there videos available?
Start on the Online Library homepage. For articles, click on FIND NOW under Find Articles. On the Find Articles & More page, you can use the following databases for information on Japanese culture:
- Academic Search Elite
- Social Science Journals
In the above two databases, you can limit to full text articles and peer reviewed (scholarly) journals if required. You can search for “Japanese culture” or Japan AND culture. If there is some more specific aspect of culture that you are looking for, like family relations for example, you can search with those keywords as well.
Also on the Find Articles & More page:
- Credo Reference (this database has articles from reference sources like encyclopedias)
- CultureGrams (click on World Edition, you can find statistics and brief cultural information)
For videos, click on FIND NOW under Find Videos. Select Filmakers Library Online. Here you can select Places under Browse and then choose all videos on Japan.
