Library Databases

Below are six library databases to use to find articles for your annotated bibliography and research paper:

•Academic Search Complete

•Credo Reference

•JSTOR

•Newspaper Source Plus

•Sustainability Reference Center

•US Major Dailies

If you find another database that’s helpful to your research that is certainly fine. Make sure with any database that you select

full text articles to save for your papers.

Keep in mind that Paper 2 and Paper 3 are APA style, so when using these databases save your citations in APA format. This will save you some time when you write your paper because you won’t have to format your citations from the very beginning
