Where To Start

Writing an English 110 or 120 paper that requires you to find outside sources? Start with these:

    Search the books available at Charles Chesnutt Library.
  • Journal/Newspaper/Magazine articles: Academic Search Complete or OmniFile Full-Text Mega (H. W. Wilson) or NC Live Databases
