Using Databases

Articles that appear in periodicals--such as newspapers, magazines, or scholarly journals--are good resources to use in your research as they can support an argument, explain a topic, or provide additionalperspectives on an issue.

The library subscribes to databases to provide access to a wide variety of articles.  They content contained in these databases are typically not freely available on the internet.  When searching on the free interenet, you may find articles that request payment for access.  But with the library databases, the library (your tuition) is paying for that access for you.  Please don't every pay to download an article from the interst--talk to a library or email and we can most likely get a copy for you at no charge.
