Hey Kiddos! I’m excited about your inquiry research process and recommend specific databases in the Cobb Digital Library to support your hunt for information. PLEASE do not dive into your research until you have reviewed the video links below and have evaluated each source. You want to be sure you use the BEST resource for your particular topic.
Gale in Context: Global Issues and Gale in Context: Opposing Viewpoints are produced by the same company so you use them the same way. Below are videos to show you how to perform specific tasks while researching within these two databases. (BTW, I LOVE THEM BOTH SO MUCH!)
