when you are looking for quick, immediate information on a topic,
you may use Internet search engines like Google or Yahoo. Because
of the nature of the Internet, many of the sources you find may
not be trustworthy because of bias, lack of knowledge on the author's
part or simple error.
On the other
hand, articles published in magazines have to go through a process
of evaluation before they ever appear in print. Once these articles
are published, they may be made available in their entirety as full-text
articles through a database service.
when FirstSearch offers Wilson OmniFile, you are provided a collection
of full-text articles that are likelier to be of higher caliber
than those public web pages found in search engines. These articles
come from journals of opinion, news magazines, and academic journals.
will guide you through a quick search on Wilson OmniFile.
