Resources to Use - Databases

Here are a few helpful databases to use when researching for your papers and presentation:

Reminders: 

  • Expanding the side menus are very helpful (think: At-a-glance, People and Culture, Religions)
  • Tabs and drop-down menus will help specify what you're looking for!
  • For JSTOR, it is probably most helpful to do an Advanced Search - remember to think outside of the box and use your keywords!

Password Hint for JSTOR (Remote Access):

Username: GCStudent1
Password HINT: Input the six-letter abbreviation for the school - do NOT use caps.

Password Hint for World Geography and Culture Online and World Religions Online (Remote Access):  

Both the username and password are the six letter abbreviation for the school.
