Use these sources to help you pick a topic and to provide context to your research based argument.
When you are just starting, it's a good idea to use the ACADEMIC SEARCH PREMIER database. Besides the selected general and subject-specific databases listed here , try these databases for articles to support your research.
Searchworks and many other databases you will use allow you to get a simple citation by using a "CiteThis" feature or gather more information by using a Send to/Export feature to send records to bibliographic management tools such as Refworks or EndNote. You can also use resources such as Zotero or Mendeley to gather information including citations. For more on these, see the guide to Bibliography Management.
