Many classes require students to do “research” or, in other words, to find information about something. One of the quickest, easiest and most reliable ways to do this is to find articles from “periodicals.” “Periodicals” is the term used by schools and libraries when referring to magazines, journals, and newspapers. A popular way to find articles is to search for them by using “online databases.” These “online databases” are collections of articles that can be accessed through the library’s web page.
