Find Scholarly Articles

Databases are collections of resources, often organized by discipline (such as English, agriculture, or business) or format (such as streaming video, image, or news). These databases are huge and great for finding quality sources in just about any topic!


News sources are considered popular sources. This includes magazines and newspapers, which are called periodicals. However, news fits into other popular categories, such as video broadcasts or websites. Find your news story across multiple outlets to cut down on bias.
