Background Information

Learn more about your overall topic.  Encyclopedias offer broad overviews and define terms and key concepts, timelines of major dates and events, and coverage of the important issues and people related to the topic.

Evidence from Library Resources

Narrow down your hit-list by choosing "subjects" from a drop-down menu, by choosing to look only at newspapers or magazines or by focusing on "academic" or "peer-reviewed," articles, or by selecting a publication date.  Get fewer and more focused results by being more specific--add more keywords.

Every article comes with a suggested MLA citation.
