Searching for Sources in Library Databases

Some websites found through a search engine like Google can be helpful. However, if you remember from the video “Using Google” in the previous tab, I mentioned a few times that scholarly articles should typically be the predominant sources you cite in an academic paper. While Google Scholar can be helpful, I’m going to use this tutorial to demonstrate the great benefits you get when you use library databases.

Following that is a series of three videos that demonstrate how to search our library databases efficiently and effectively. The first video ensures you understand the difference between scholarly and popular sources. The next two videos explains how to use databases to get quality, useful sources.
