Instead of using Google or Wikipedia, try using this source. If you type in a subject at the top, such as "Cold War," the site will return a list of links--you will see an icon telling you if the source is open-unlocked or unvailable-locked. These sources are an excellent place to begin general subject and topic research. Most entries provide a scholarly essay including a bibliography and links to other sources and or subject terms.
(Below) The first link is to the entire guide we looked at in class from the Library of Congress/Middle Tennessee State University. The rest of the links go to direct sources on the guide. (Some of the links on the guide do not work.) The ones I have listed definitely work:-)
