Don’t know much about history…

You’re working on a history project and can’t get to the library. Sure, you can google your topic and find tons of stuff, but is it any good? Who writes those Web pages? Do they really know what they’re talking about or is it just my best friend’s cousin’s little brother’s Web page? Don’t freak out. Help is just a few mouse clicks and your library card away. (Update: You have to enter your library card number AND the PIN or password for your library account to use databases now. Talk to library staff if you don’t know your PIN or password.)
