Using Databases

Having good research techniques can really make a difference when looking up information and writing your paper. Using simple or popular databases like Google can give you a massive amount of results, however, they can often drown out the information you really need or throw in false information that really does you no good. To help you out with this, the library is equipped with a variety of databases for you to use and even helps narrow it down to what databases specialize in your subject.
