Find background, key concepts, terminology and sources

Searching databases to find good scholarly articles

Evaluating your sources
Some tips on how to evaluate the sources you've found

Citing your sources
Understand citations

Getting help with your research, citations, or finding resources.

Don't pay for stuff!

Never pay for an article or book or access to resources.

In most cases (except for textbooks), the Cornell Library has online journals, newspapers, magazines, ebooks and print books, or can get them for you at no charge to you! 

Passkey can help you find it at Cornell, or Ask a Librarian.
