      Let’s look at how to find these materials

      Print vs. electronic books
      Find a book on your topic
    • FINDING MAGAZINE AND NEWSPAPER ARTICLES
      Use search engines (databases) available through the library webpage.
    • LIBRARY DATABASES-SOME INFO

    • FINDING WEBSITES: TIPS & TRICKS
      There’s a lot of information out there. Be choosy and find the best sites:
    • AUTHORITY: Who’s website is this & why should I trust it?
      Look at the domain to get an overall sense of what type of website it is:
    • AUTHORITY: Who’s website is this anyway?
      Look on the page to see who created the page:
      About us
      Bottom of page
      See if there is any information about the group or person’s credentials.
    • Can these websites be trusted?
      “College students” and “stress management”
      Analyze two of the hits for authority:
      Stress management techniques for college students http://www.essortment.com/stress-management-techniques-college-students-40346.html
