|What's the Big Deal About Databases?
Why is it important to learn to use databases
like EBSCO and SIRS? There are several reasons that it is worth your
time! First of all, these resources contain articles that have been
through the review process and are considered scholarly. When you are
spending time on research, you want to be sure that you are getting
valid information. Databases are a fast, efficient way to make sure that
you are doing this. Databases will also give you more articles that fit
your topic. You will not have to wade through as many irrelevant hits
as you would doing a Google search. This saves you valuable time. Citing
your source is an essential part of the research process. When you use
an article from a database, the information needed to correctly cite
your resource is right there for you. Finally, your college professors
will expect you to already know how to access databases and use them
efficiently. Learning this skill now will give you a big advantage in
college when you have to write that first paper. Check out our databases
and other resources by going to the "Symbaloo."
