Helpful Research Documents
When you’re doing research, the best places to look for reliable and accurate periodicals are the databases the school district maintains for your use. Databases available to you are listed below, as well as some other search tools. Usernames and passwords are available at the circulation desk. Plus, you can PRINT for FREE from the databases!
TIPS BEFORE YOU GET STARTED:
Make sure you read over the source and that it actually contains useful information BEFORE you print–sometimes it is just an abstract (summary of the article) and isn’t going to provide any useful content for research.
Check for all necessary citation information. The databases will provide this information in your assigned format (most likely MLA 8th ed.), but you have to verify before you print.
Look for the PDF format, when possible, to find the article as it appeared in its original publication.
TexQuest and ProQuest allow you to sign in with Google Drive and export your sources and your citations.
