When you are researching in one our our Digital Resources Databases, 
perhaps using Ebsco (Literary Reference Center, Point of View, or Explora) 
or perhaps using InfoBase (Bloom's, American History, or VideoOnDemand)
you may be wondering... How do I cite something from a database?

First, remember, since these sources are paid for, they are protected and it will not work 
if you try to copy and paste the url like you may have done for other websites.  
Fortunately, most databases provide a 'Cite' button or a 'Permalink' button.
The 'Permalink' will give you a persistent url that you can copy, paste, and save ,and then
use to go back to the article, while the 'Cite' can be used to create proper works cited pages.

Using these are the way to avoid extreme disappointment and frustration!
