You will search for academic articles in databases. It is ok to use Google Scholar. Most databases require you to develop search terms or "keywords" that summarize the main points of your topic. See the next tab on how to search a database.
This search box is like "Google" for the Libraries: it searches most of what we have. You can use the filters that pop up on the left side of the screen after your initial search to narrow your result by date, peer review, type of resource.
