Suggested Databases
Some databases will be more useful than others, depending on your topic. These are all in the History section of the databases:

  • Britannica ImageQuest
  • CQ Researcher
  • Genocide
  • Global Issues in Context
  • SIRS (Social Issues Researcher)
  • World History in Context


Search online for at least 2 reliable websites (determine reliability using the SCRAP Test).
