How to Search in Library Databases

Research for Technical Reports and Presentations

Academic research requires a thorough investigation into the body of literature about a given topic. You must examine and refer to scholarly sources when completing academic assignments (unless otherwise indicated by your instructor). Scholarly sources include academic journals, encyclopedias, handbooks, and books/e-books.

Referring to scholarly sources will:

-    Add depth to your understanding
-    Strengthen your argument
-    Reduce bias and misconceptions

START FIRST with the library website.  Library resources are built around your program, are verified for credibility, provide targeted results using advanced search, are copyright licensed and freely available to the Sheridan community for educational purposes.
