Flipster provides access to popular, not scholarly, publications. When searching for sources to use for your English 101 assignments, consider the publication and whether or not it is appropriate for a college assignment.
Look for books or articles by combining words for what you hope to find and the country you are exploring. For example:
In our HELM catalog (for books) you can limit to just the Lowell campus, either Lowell or Bedford (choose the Group Middlesex Community College) or the whole system. For books from Bedford or any other HELM library, you can place a hold and the book will be delivered to the Lowell campus for you. Remember your library password is usually your birthday in MMDDYYYY format.
Try more than one database when you are looking for articles. Each one has a different set of articles. Try different combinations of keywords. Remember librarians are happy to brainstorm keywords that might help with your research.
