Gender and Women's Studies / Anthropology 2400 : Women's Folklore: How do I find folklore articles?

"The tale I have told you, that tale is a lie. But listen to me, bright maiden, proud youth--the tale is a lie; what it tells is the truth.” Traditional Folktale Ending

Best Databases for Folkore

There are relatively few specialized journals that focus on folklore & folklife & the best single database for searching those is JSTOR.  However, JSTOR won't have the most recent articles available--for those, using the library's "Start My Research" search box covers all of the critical titles.  Just make sure to use a "facet limit" in the Subject Terms list--choose "Folklore" to help restrict your articles to that topic area.
