Information on the fast food industry and your related concepts can be found inside our article databases.  There are a few core databases to look at, depending on the angle you wish to take concerning fast food, technology, and instant gratification.

Academic Search Premier is a general database of full text articles that will cover several different aspects of your topic. 

Use these suggested search terms:

  •  "Fast Food"
  • "instant gratification"
  • "technology"

Sometimes you may need to think of related words to use as additional search terms:

  • "convenience foods"
  • "convenience"
  • "addiction"
  • "fast food industry" 

You can find Academic Search Premier in the A-Z Databases list.

The Controversial Issues databases with in-depth topic reports are a great choice for information concerning fast food and obesity mixing with industry practices.   See a full list of Controversial Issues article databases.
