RefWorks logo

Manage your citations with RefWorks, a tool that allows researchers to easily import, export, search, and create automatically formatted bibliographies online. Citations found via searches in library databases such as JSTOR and many other databases can be imported directly into RefWorks. No manual typing required. Bibliographies generated within RefWorks can then be exported to Word in virtually any citation format, e.g. MLA, APA, Chicago, Turabian and others.

Library Search (long)

The Library Search is your gateway to discover books, journal articles, and much more at Temple University Libraries. Additional information can be found in our Library Search FAQ's.

Search the Web

Most of the library databases listed on this guide can only be accessed by people affiliated with Temple University. Such databases are part of the "hidden web." In other words, Google generally cannot index or retrieve the content in library databases. I recommend that you begin your research with the library databases. However, if you find it difficult to locate information about an obscure dissenter, then by all means broaden your search to include the "free web" indexed by Google, DuckDuckGo, Yahoo!, and/or Bing.

Just remember that no single search tool could ever find all relevant information about a dissenter on the web. Regardless of which directory or search engine you employ, always remember to read the Help page(s). Learning just a few simple search techniques can lessen the frustration of returning thousands of irrelevant search results, particularly when searching the free web.

Google Search Tip - Limit your results to educational websites by using "site:edu" in conjunction with your search term(s). Example: site:edu "copperhead movement"
