On-line Databases A databas e is a searchable place in which information is stored and from which it can be retrieved. If you don’t have time to order or pick up items from the library, you should use a full-text databas e from where many of the articles contained within can be printed. Always consult your campus reference librarian when you need assistance locating research items.

Using Books Not only are books available at your local library, you can also find some books online at sources like www.booksinprint.com/bip for a fee. Be prepared to read the book before you quote it in your speech; summaries or book reviews are not sufficient sources to include as supporting material in a speech.
