Why should you do research in academic journals?
If you find one good article that supports your research, you can use the bibliography at the end of the paper to locate further research.
Use a periodical database to find articles from magazines, journals, and newspapers. Not sure how a database works? The box to your right offers some general tips that apply to most library databases. A complete, alphabetical listing of BCC's databases provides a description of each and the subject matter covered. Below is a selection of databases which are useful for general academic research. For information on accessing national and regional newspapers for research, see the next section from the pull-down menu in this library orientation.
