I like to call this database the "Walmart" of databases -- no matter what you search for, you should find a few articles on your topic. For this assignment, you might find the database useful because it includes a large number of popular science & technology magazines, as well as marketing and parenting magazines. Use the menu on the left-hand side to narrow by "Source Type" (in this case, choose magazines).
