Did you know you can also chat or text with one of our on-duty librarians?  It's anonymous, free, and super fast!

Use Academic Search to search for peer reviewed/scholarly articles, newspaper articles, or eBooks. For example, if your research topic is "social media effects on voter behavior", use the search box to find popular or scholarly articles on "social media", along with "voter behavior" and you may add "positive" or "negative" "impact or effect."

  • Enter in your basic search terms, such as "Texting while Driving"
  • Limit to Full Text, so you can read articles online
  • Check News, Magazines or Scholarly/Peer Reviewed for academic articles
  • Scroll down the first page of articles, and click on the most interesting one
  • Click on one of the Subject Terms (they're hyperlinked) and see where it takes you!
