The Thacher School Databases
These database links will only work on campus. If you are off campus, you will need to access them from following the prompt at the bottom of the database links on the Thacher Library web page.
Databases vary in the type of information they offer. If your topic is historical in nature, most likely JStor, Questia, GVR, Google Scholar and books will be your best bet. Please see my notes beneath each one to help guide you.
Full-text ebooks. Just click and open them on to your computer. Here are some examples that could be helpful. Feel free to search Ebrary yourself as well.
When searching Google use site:edu before your search terms to retrieve items specifically associated with educational institutions. Such items are more credible than dot.com items you may retrieve in a general Google search. You can use any combination of words. The important thing is to use the the command, site: command followed by whatever domain you would like to search.
See the example below.
