The UT Libraries provide access to a number of helpful search tools useful for this class. If you have questions about how to use these tools, please contact Gina or use our Ask A Librarian chat service.
Unsure what we mean by "library database"? See the helpful video at the bottom of the page!
Looking for something like Wikipedia but scholarly and appropriate for an academic assignment? Try these vetted, edited collections of scholarly encyclopedias, biographies, dictionaries, and bibliographies.
Use these search tools and databases to find scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles. Unsure what scholarly/peer-reviewed articles are? See this Types of Sources guide.
Your instructor or subject librarian may throw around the term "library database" a lot, but what exactly do they mean? This video from RMIT University in Australia explains the term and how you can use databases for research. (Plus, the narrator has a great accent!)
