    • Use a Database/Online Resource
      Newspapers, magazines, scholarly journals, images, reference books, primary sources and more
      School pays for access – has info you can’t get free on the web
      Edited/fact checked, so often more reliable than websites
      Ask library staff for passwords to use from home
      Use your library card to access public library research tools
