Open each database, and plug in your search terms. Try doing a keyword search first, then a subject search. Hover over database link to reveal any necessary passwords. Cite the sources you find helpful for your project in Noodle Tools (open it through your Bishops gmail). 



  • Always look at the works cited for articles, books and other resources. It's a great place to discover possible sources for your paper.
  • Check the subjects, and use them like a hashtag. Do a subject search. Great places to find subjects are in the library catalog (scroll down), in Worldcat (they are on the right), or on the Library of Congress subject finding web page.
  • You can save articles from Gale and some other resources to Google Docs by hitting download and choosing Google Docs. 
  • Have Noodle Tools open, and add sources as you find them. Organize your topics in notecards, and create an outline. 
  • You can paste citation information into Noodle Tools.  Just remember to check the formatting before you submit your final bibliography.
  • If you use an open web resource, assess the source. Think about who wrote it and why, who published it. Sites ending in ".edu" or ".gov" are usually reputable. Think about when it was written and for what purpose. Check to see if they have a works cited page.
  • You can always set up a research consulation with the librarians. They can help you get started or delve deeper into your topic.
