Comparing and contrasting databases
Ask:
  • How many results did you get?
  • What kinds of articles do you find?
  • What types of sources can you find other than print articles?
  • Where do the sources come from? Are the original to the database or were they first published somewhere else?
  • How complex is the information?
  • What types of search terms work and what doesn't work?
  • Is the database/the sources good for beginning research or more advanced research?
