Limit results to the following source types (magazines, academic journals and newspapers).

Review and use the hyperlinks in an article's bibliographic record in order to find additional information on a topic.




Consider the document types and limit accordingly:

News Reports - Time sensitive pieces that include facts such as dates and places.  They are meant to be  more neutral in tone.

Articles & features - These pieces are longer and explore topics in greater depth.  A feature article oftentimes expresses a point of view.

Editorials & commentaries - Opinion pieces.  The author might be an editor or an expert in a field, such as a sports journalist.
