Scholarly Resources

Scholarly resources are ones created by and for folks who are seriously studying a topic, folks who might be considered "scholars." This includes research articles, like those you can find in the Quick Search (see a demo of a Quick Search example below), as well as things like encyclopedias and dictionaries like those found in Credo Reference.

Quick Search

Newspapers

Newspapers are a good option for finding popular sources for your topics! You don't have to use a newspaper as one of your popular sources, but some topics will be able to find some great sources in here.

You can search in the database below, called Access World News, for newspaper articles on your topics by searching for your topic and then filtering the results to only those from a certain source location (like Texas or Corpus Christi) or from a certain source name (like The Houston Chronicle or the Corpus Christi Caller Times). You can also limit the articles to only those published within a certain date range, this is a great way to make sure you have the most up to date information on your topic.
