Database Usage Guide
Why can’t I just Google it?
-Google searches the whole internet, more stuff makes it harder to find what you need.
-Google might find the same articles, but in places that may ask you to pay for them!
-Google can find results that look good, but might not be trustworthy.
When you use the library Databases:
-The databases have lots of special tools that give them powerful search options!
-You’ll never have to pay for the articles, because we’ve done that for you!
-You can trust the answers you get through the databases!
-You get the most current information, even more current than a new book!
To put it simply, the databases are almost always the best way to do research for school. It takes just a little bit to learn them, but they’ll make all your research faster and easier once you do!
And if you ever get confused with them, just ask a librarian. We’d love to help out!
