To search the EBSCO databases, you'll first need to visit our list of databases http://libguides.tncc.edu/az.php. Click on "E" or type EBSCO in the search box. Click on the entry for EBSCO databases, then check the box for Academic Search Complete (a great database no matter what your topic) You may also want to check the boxes for other databases depending on your topic. For example, if you have a psychology topic, you might choose the Psychology and Behavioral Science Collection in addition to Academic Search Complete. 

Once you've selected a database, try searching by keyword. For example, if you're looking for articles on the pros and cons of legalizing marijuana, you might search for the keywords "marijuana" AND "legalization". For more information on choosing keywords, watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJdbBHkGgwc
