Articles & Databases

Remember that librarians are here to help. So if you need any research assistance or help finding a resource or information on a topic, please let us know and we would be happy to assist you.
To help make sense of all the information available at the Morton College Library, the librarians have created a number of different Research Guides. These Research Guides provide guidance for those looking to find information in a given topic or discipline by showing the most useful databases in that subject area, highlighting new and helpful books in the area, and giving helpful hints to researchers.
