Articles in periodicals (newspapers, magazines, scholarly journals)
are one of the most useful sources for research.

Use Library Databases to gain access to thousands of periodicals through online databases (or e-resources). These databases are  library subscriptions, so you will find more reliable sources than if you just search using Google or Yahoo.

  • Find one article on your topic.

Academic Search Complete is a database designed for college student research - with lots of articles from newspapers, magazines and newspapers, plus lots of other sources.  (If you are off-campus you must use your ACC eID to get access.)

Search Tip: If your search words are a phrase, such as study skills, put the words in quotation marks. You can also combine phrases in quotation marks with other keywords: "time management" college.  You will get more focused results. 

  • Use your same topic and find one good article. List it on your worksheet.
