Good morning and welcome to the library. I’m pleased to be able to talk to you this morning about the various ways you can find information on your paper topic, which I understand is climate change. I’m going to walk you through two databases that we have here at Sacramento City College, and also give you some strategies that hopefully will help you use other databases—many of them work similarly. We dont’ have a lot of time, so we’ll just get started.
