Disability Studies

This guide provides information on print and electronic resources for the study of disabilities and people with disabilities.


Databases are subscription resources that bring articles from a variety of journals into one place with a sophisticated search engine. Access the databases directly from this guide, from the UMD Libraries Homepage or Database Finder.

Use the databases below to find journal articles, book chapters, book reviews, conference proceedings, dissertations, and more related to your topic.

  • Because of its multi-disciplinary nature, there is no single database for locating Disability Studies materials.
  • Choose a subject database from the list below that best fits your topic.
