Using the SUNY Poly Library Researching a Topic guide, you should divide your research into two stages:
Stage 1: Use the library databases to identify a source, e.g., a journal article
Stage 2: Use various resources to obtain the source, including asking a librarian for help in your research.
The database(s) that you choose make a big difference in the results that you receive. If you are not sure which database to choose, review the alphabetical order tab on the library's database descriptions page.
