Whenever I talk to teachers or students about research strategies, the first thing that I say is “ask your teacher-librarian for help.” I say that because librarians can help students access academic databases that they would otherwise ignore if they just rely on Google search. Common Craft has just published a video that illustrates that point very well.
Academic Databases Explained teaches viewers why using an academic database can save them time and help them find more relevant resources than what they would discover through just conducting a Google search. The video also teaches how to go about finding an academic database (ask your librarian) and how to search within an academic database.
