MS - 8 - Supreme Court Project 2015/16: Databases / Encyclopedias

Using a Database

Think of a database as a library where you can get information from encyclopedias, books, magazines, and newspapers. A database is like having an entire library at your fingertips. Most importantly, databases provide you with the reliable search results you need for academic research. 

The REALLY good news is that databases provide the citations you will need for your Works Cited!
