Q. My professor said I can’t use any web pages for my paper. Does this mean I can’t use your databases?
Not at all! There is a big difference between using our databases and the web.
For the most part, articles in databases are an electronic version of (or a citation for) articles that have been written and published in a journal, magazine, or other publication. Many come from scholarly or peer-reviewed sources.
Web pages found through Google or Yahoo vary widely in quality. Most have not gone through any sort of review process.
If you have questions about using a source, ask your professor or a reference librarian. You can call the reference desk at 570.484.2468 or e-mail a reference librarian.
