Research Databases

Research Databases

You don’t have to be on campus to find relevant, high-quality articles and ebooks on your research topics. Journals, magazines, newspapers, ebooks and other sources are available online at all times – some databases will even generate citations for you to include in your bibliography. Ask a librarian if you have questions about using databases.
