To find journal articles on a particular topic, use the databases available on the FLITE web site. Books and academic journals are the primary sources for academic and scientific research. Sometimes your assignments will require you to find academic articles or book chapters because they are considered the most reliable resources. Databases can deliver full-text articles or sometimes just abstracts or summaries that we can help you find.
When looking for books, especially books on reserve, use the Library Catalog. Search either using keyword or subject.
