The JCC Databases provide access to a huge amount of articles from scholarly journals, magazines, trade publications, newspapers as well as streaming video, music, art and photographic images, and statistical charts. Use Search Almost Everything to find articles and other resources from most of the databases JCC subscribes to with one search. The limiters on the left side of the result page allow you to narrow down your results to the type of article you need. You can also use subject specific databases - like just science or just psychology databases. Find them on the JCC Databases page.
There are several good newspaper databases and some "general" databases that may be good for this assignment. Once you have learned some things about your chosen topic you may want to use a subject specific database to delve more deeply into your research.
