  • 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
