Databases provide access to articles from credible, well-known newspapers, magazines and journals. The library pays a subscription fee for several general and subject-specific databases for students and faculty to use.
Some databases contain scholarly content, like academic journals on a specific subject, and others contain articles from popular magazines such as Newsweek or Forbes. Databases may contain a mixture of content from both scholarly and popular sources.
You will need to use your KCTCS ID and password (same one you use for Blackboard) to access databases from home.
These databases contain articles that will make excellent sources for a pro/con paper. If you're not sure where to start, try Opposing Viewpoints in Context or CQ Research.
Note: Enter your KCTCS ID and Password (same one you use for email or Blackboard) when prompted.
Search scholarly literature on the open web using Google Scholar.
