just remember
If you find magazine, newspaper, reference book, and encyclopedia articles from databases, you should cite them as you would the print versions.

However, in your works cited entry, you must also give credit to the database that you used to find each article.

The databases are not your sources of information. Your sources of information are the articles that the databases helped you find!

Just Remember…
for example this is how you would cite a magazine article from the opposing viewpoints database
For example, this is how you would cite a magazine article from the Opposing Viewpoints database.
