Usually, you will get the best results by using a database that falls within your subject area.
1. Use the dropdown "Subjects" menu to aid in your selection.
- For example, if you are searching for sources for your Criminal Justice class, it is helpful to choose from the databases within the Criminal Justice subject area, as they will have the most relevant resources.
2. Choose "Criminal Justice" from the "Subjects" dropdown, as shown below. There are 16 different recommended databases that contain Criminal Justice - related resources.
- Most subjects will also have a "Best Bets" section, which generally suggests the "best" or most popular option(s) for the chosen subject, but depending on what you are searching for, it may be beneficial to consider the other databases within that subject area as well.
3. Underneath the database title (or if you hover over the title as shown below) is a short description of the types of resources and subject areas the database contains.
