CWC has access to a multitude of online databases available. Databases provide access to credible, usually scholarly reviewed, content that is not always found through your typical search engines. We pay (a lot) for access to hundreds of databases that provide reliable sources for your research needs. Many of the databases include newspaper and journal articles written by professional writers or experts in the field.
There are many reasons that you should utilize databases for your research needs.
