During your coursework or capstone project, you may require background research to support your design decisions. Research databases are your best source for scholarly literature. They provide a collection of digital materials such as journal articles, theses, and patents that have been catalogued and professionally curated.
Choosing the correct database for your search is important, as they cover a wide variety of topics from psychology, education, clinical medicine, and more.
Remember, Google Scholar is not a research database; it is a web search engine.
Many databases have a GetIt!@Waterloo button beside each abstract.
If the Library subscribes to that journal online, this link can be a quick way to connect to the article.
