Key Terms to Try for "White Privilege"

  • Use the SDCCD+ tab on the library homepage
  • In general, search using one or two nouns, combined by AND or OR.
  • Do more than one search, using different words that cover the same concept.
  • If you find too much information, take out a word. If you don't find enough, add one.
  • Use an asterisk (*) to search for variations on a word. For example, searching for student* will bring up records on student and students.
  • For more information, see Develop a topic

There are so many different ways you can take this, so these are only a few examples. Look out for more terms as you search:

  • "White privilege" (the quotes, " " searches for a phrase). If you find nothing, go to the next suggestion.
  • white* AND privilege (the asterisk, *, searches for white, whites).
  • whites AND “race identity” (the quotes, " " searches for a phrase)
  • “race awareness”
