When you have a project that requires you to explore how an issue was viewed during a specific time period or that requires you find older articles, this is one of the few times the Academic Search Complete database is not a great place to start.  Instead, try the databases JSTOR and Reader's Guide Retrospective.

Suggestion One: Try searching historical databases JSTOR and Reader's Guide Retrospective.

Suggestion Two: This eBook might help.

Social policy : essential primary sources

Suggestion Three: Try searching Academic Search Complete or another EBSCOHost database and resort your results so that the OLDEST items appear first in your results list.

Video below demonstrates how to resort results in Academic Search Complete -- and any EBSCOHost database -- so that the oldest items appear first in your results list.
