As we learn about your individual information needs we will post recommended sources that may be helpful in directing you to resources.  Factors such as age of subject(s), specific environment contribute to the keywords that you may use - then check the Descriptors associated with the entry for additional refinements you can make to your search strategy.  The PsycINFO Thesaurus is also online.  Use the Limits at the end of the search box to also focus your search. 

Databases A-Z lists alphabetically by title all databases at UCI with brief annotations for coverage & scope.

PsycINFO, Criminal Justice Abs, Social Services Abstracts, Sociological Abstracts, Agricultural & Environmental Sciences Collection, PAIS, and other databases are part of the Proquest platform and can be searched together reducing the duplicate entries however you lose the added functionality found especially in PsycINFO when you do that.
