Also, while you should NEVER use Wikipedia in a research assignment (because it’s not 100% accurate all of the time), I DO recommend scrolling to the bottom of a Wikipedia entry for External Links, and sometimes the footnotes and the bibliography – These sections often have academic websites on the same topic that you might want to use for an assignment!


Databases (on the Database TAB of THIS web site)

Biography in Context: search for a specific person in the search window (You can also search by a person’s occupation, nationality, birth place or death place; Do an Advanced Search to search for multiple traits) - TONS!!! of great information on specific authors, including the citation (at the bottom of the Biography article)

SIRS Researcher: type in your search – After you select an article, you can scroll to the very bottom to read the article SUMMARY and to find the correct citation to paste into your notes.
