The ACC Library subscribes to almost 100 databases. These are resources that are on the Internet but are limited to paid subscribers. In general they provide more consistently reliable and focused information than typical Web searching using Google or Yahoo! Also, many of the articles in these databases already include Works Cited entries.
To access these, you can start at the ACC Library homepage.
You will have an easier time if you go directly to the list of databases at this link:
