I found a great website named Questia where you can do word searches on over 67,000 books and 1.5 million articles. This is perfect for writing a paper because you don't have to go to the library at all. With that many books and articles, you'll be sure to find something on whatever you have to write your paper on.
One of the really helpful tools on the website keeps track of all the books you make a footnote or citation from and then when you're done with the paper, you just click a button and it generates the entire bibliography in one of five popular styles so you can just print it out. There is even a highlighter you can use to mark on the book pages.
Questia makes research faster and easier - and you can research when and where you want with 24x7 access. They also have lots of good ideas for paper topics in case you have to write a paper and but don't have a topic chosen yet.
By clicking this link to get to the website, you'll let them know I sent you.
