I am doing a paper on the subprime lending market and its effects on minorities. I have found lots of newspaper articles, but I don’t know where to find other scholarly resources.
To start, use Searchworks and search for "subprime lending." You will get records for several government documents, including May 2007 Congressional Hearings on the issue. If you click on the title, you will see a link for the Electronic version of the Hearing transcripts. There are also several reports from 2000 about the unequal burden in subprime lending. Also in Searchworks, try searching for "discrimination and mortgage loans" under "subject terms," which yields other relevant books and documents.
You may also want to try the database ABI/Inform, searching for “mortgages and racial discrimination.” Use the tabs at the top of the Results list to see results from scholarly journals, magazines, trade publications, or newspapers. Also, the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development has useful information about this topic.

Where can I find good sources about steroid use in sports?
For books, try a Searchworks search using subject terms such as "Doping in sports," which will turn up many sources--for example, this and this. The search will also locate relevant government documents, such as subcommittee hearings and testimony.
For newspaper and magazine articles, use the Database Academic Search Premier with search terms such as "Sports and drugs," "doping and sports," or "sports and steroids." For scholarly journal articles, try ProQuest Social Science Module and CSA’s Sociological Abstracts database with the same search terms.
