When you have the option to use "popular" articles, it sounds pretty easy, but it can get overwhelming pretty quickly. Often when we talk about popular articles, we're talking about magazine articles, as opposed to the scholarly sources you'll use for many of your assignments. On this page, I provide some options for locating these popular articles.
One way to find popular articles is to use the Quick Search tool (the search box on the UNLV Libraries home page) and limit yourself to MAGAZINE ARTICLES.
Search for your topic, then look for the Format filter on the right side. You probably will need to click "Show More" to find the Magazine Articles option.
