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. Information has value!
Using the databases means you have access to quality sources appropriate for college research. Scholarly articles are written by subject matter experts and go through a rigorous peer review process.
When you use Google for your research, you have to evaluate the information very carefully to make sure it is reliable. Use our SCARAB to evaluate the information you find.
