Really important things to remember
1. You will need a username and password for many of these resources, especially if you access them from home. The login credentials you will need are on this LibGuide for your reference.
2. The databases (and many of the ebooks) have the MLA citation for you. Usually it is at the bottom of the article. Sometimes you have to click a "citation tool" to pull it up. Look around on the article page; if you can't figure out how to find the citation, let Mrs. Milloway know.
3. As soon as you decide an article is one that you will use, copy and paste the citation into a word or google document. You'd be surprised how hard it is to find that same article again.
4. To cite print books or ebooks that don't already give you the citation, use the MLA guidelines in the "handouts" section of this LibGuide.
5. The best search terms will combine ideas so that you get the most relevant results. For example, you might search religion Ancient Greece instead of just Ancient Greece in order to get to the results you want more quickly. Similarly, you might try gender Igbo or character Things Fall Apart.
6. Use Ctrl f (control find) to locate words on a specific page (database, ebook, etc.) When you strike Ctrl and the f keys at the same time, a search box will come up on the screen. Type what you are looking for specifically into that box, hit enter and your search term will be highlighted on the page.
