You can search articles on most any topic from a myriad of resources, such as magazines, journals, encyclopedias, books, diaries, educational institutions, museums, news reels, newspapers, archival images,  to name a few.  Each article is peer reviewed before published,  adding to its credibility.  Each article will include its citiation for you to add to your works cited page. Definitely a time saver and A MUST KNOW FOR COLLEGE RESEARCH!

Databases are very expensive, which is why we have only a few, compared to Stanford which has thousands!
