Research & Databases

Bookshelves
  • Researching? Awesome! Do your best work with the resources below. 

  • DATABASES

    Information from a database is trustworthy because it comes from a professional, reliable, and current resource. 


  • SEARCH ENGINES

    Google is good, but when it comes to academic research we strongly recommend starting with one of these search engines.

  • IMAGES

    Make sure to cite your images!

    Copyright matters - protect the rights of others and yourself by choosing images labeled for reuse and properly crediting where you found it.

    Here are some places to start searching. 

    • For Google images, type in your search.
    • Under the search bar, click on "Search Tools."
    • Then click on "Usage Rights" and choose the option that suits your project. 
    • * If you are going to change an image, you should choose a "Reuse with Modification" option. If you are pulling an image without changing it, choose "Labeled for reuse" OR "Labeled for noncommercial reuse." 
  • CITATIONS

    Citations show where you found the information you are using. Providing a bibliography of your sources (a list of citations) is proof of the good work you did. Rememb‚Äčer: always include the link so people can find your sources easily!
