This page lists several resources for your research paper.
Finding Materials for Your Surveying Research Paper
Journals, Newspaper, and Magazine Articles
ProQuest - This database offers journal, magazine, and newspaper articles. You can find it at the RTC Library Database page.
You can use this database on or off campus. If you are off-campus go to the database page, and after you select ProQuest, you will be asked for your RTC user name (whatever comes before the @ sign in your RTC email address) and your email password.
Also try your local public library. King County Public Library and Seattle Public Library have some excellent databases. Look for these: Expanded Academic ASAP, General OneFile, General Reference Center Gold, and New York Times Historical (1851 - 2006). You will need a library card from that library to access them, but you can do it over the internet.
RTC Library Catalog - Lists books and videos in RTC Library. You can use this catalog from off-campus; you don’t even need to sign in.
WorldCat - Lists books, videos, multimedia and more, held in libraries around the world. You can use this resource anywhere; you don’t need to sign in.
Google Books - Searches millions of books. Some are full text, others may offer “snippets” – small sections around your search term.
Try the Web Sites tab above for links to surveying history or geography topics.
Library of Congress Map Collections - Four centuries of maps of the United States - and more!
