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."
