NEVER PAY FOR ARTICLES: The library subscribes to databases that have lots of articles in them from reputable news outlets. You do NOT need to pay for a subscription to a newspaper.
ALWAYS GRAB THE PERMALINK: Permalinks or permanent links are associated with articles so you can always get back to that article. You will need these for your Research Logs.
