The Library databases allow you to access articles that were originally published in magazines, newspapers, journals, and reference or book sources. These are databases the library pays to have access to and that you help pay for through your tuition. Using the databases helps to ensure you are getting good quality sources appropriate for college research. When you use Google for your research you have to be an information detective and evaluate the information very carefully to make sure it is reliable.
