Note that when a Professor tells you not to use Internet sources, getting journal articles from the databases is still a viable alternative. The journal articles are NOT considered Internet sources even though we utilize the Web to access the articles.
Databases are the best way to find quality articles. BGSU, along with the other OhioLINK Library members, pool their money to subscribe to many wonderful databases that allow you to print full text articles for free. Because of our affiliation with BGSU, we have access to over 300 databases. Doing a search on the Web will not always allow you to access good scholarly information that you are expected to use for college level research and many times web sites expect you to pay for articles or subscriptions for usage.
The first step to finding relevant research articles is determining which databases are most useful for your topic.
A good starting place is Academic Search Complete (EBSCO database). This is a comprehensive, scholarly, multi-disciplinary database with many Full Text articles.
