Be lazy, use databases. When doing research instead of Googling your topic, use a database. You won’t have to worry about the quality or reliability of your information if you use a database. The Arizona State Library provides databases for you to use. Go to http://www.azlibrary.gov/dazl/learners/high-school-and-junior-high and search. You will save time. I promise!
