Q. I am writing a research paper on the rainforests and their locations.
A good place to start is with our databases.
1. Go o the Library's home page and click on the Database tab.
2. Select the Research Guides>>Guides by Subject link.
3. Select your subject area – I recommend Environmental Studies. From here you may choose a database. A database is a collection of materials including scholarly journal articles that are easily searchable in one place. A good database to choose here is Academic Search Complete. It covers a lot of general information.
You can use the search terms
Rainforest & Geography
Rainforest & Biome
You may also want to search for books under the Catalog tab on the Library's homepage.
