What’s a grad student’s go-to database?

“I like to use ERIC (Proquest) when I am researching for Education classes because it provides the most narrow search results.  The database is approved by the US Department of Education so I know that I am using a valid Education database.  I also find it very easy to search for specific topics and find related research.  This is typically the first database I use when I am beginning research on a topic.  I like that this database includes dissertations and thesis projects which I have found valuable for many of the topics that I have focused on this semester.  There is also access to books, journals, and conference papers which is helpful for recent research.  In my opinion, this is the most helpful Education database.”
