Library Introduction: Databases- Best Bets

Why Use Library Databases?

What is Peer-Review?


Most databases have a feature that allows you to copy the citation for the article. To find the CITE tool,  look around the outside edges of the record . (For example. the Academic Search Complete database  has its CITE  tool in the far right margin. Other databases may have it on the left).

Also, remember to select the correct citation style (such as MLA or APA)  if  your instructor specified which one you should use. And always double check the citation for accuracy -the Tutoring Center (2nd floor of the Library by Archives) can help.


Helpful information on citations is also on the Citations Library Research Guide.
