As a BRCC student, you have access to millions of journals and articles.
Your instructors likely want you to use scholarly, peer-reviewed sources as evidence for your assignments.
First, we need to choose a database. I'm going to look at Academic Search Complete by clicking Articles/Databases on the library homepage.
This is a great general database with information about a lot of different topics.
Click on All Subjects to narrow down your subject field.
For example, English 111 students would choose Controversial Issues in this drop down menu.
