Google Scholar Search

Google Scholar is a great resource for finding scholarly resources. It is also a great place to check for the full-text of an article before submitting an ILL request. 

News Sources

Newspapers can be a great way to discover how an event was viewed internationally, especially things such as wars, elections, coups, debates, policies, etc.
