When in Doubt, Cite it Out!
Citing your sources of information has a two-fold purpose:
- You are giving the original author(s)/creator(s) proper credit
- You are providing your readers/audience access to the information you used
Online Article Databases
Online Article Databases allow access the CONTENTS of magazines, journals & newspapers in the form of citations, abstracts and full-text.
FULL-TEXT allows you to read the full article online, email it,
download & save it, and/or print it.
MELCAT provides access to over 48 million items from over 390 participating Michigan libraries.
- Requests are patron initiated
- Requested materials take 5-7 business days to arrive at Kendall College Library
