Library Research Databases
How can you combat fake news? Win half the battle by using trusted search tools to locate your information. By accessing subscription research databases, you have access to information that most likely is not available for free on the web (i.e. through a google search) and which is from well-known, credible sources.
Types of sources include newspapers and other news sources, magazines & journals, podcasts, excerpts from books, recommended credible websites, and more.
Once you locate your information, you should still evaulate it for any bias or slant. It is always good to compare multiple sources.
Use the link below to access the DHS Library Research page where you will find a number of reliable research tools organized by subject.
Access to the majority of these research databases is provided FREE to you through the MA Library System.
