What are Databases?

The library databases are searchable online collections of journal articles and other documents on various subjects.

Some are focused directly on your subject, while others cover a wider range of subjects.

Which database you use depends on what you’re looking for. It’s a good idea to start with Search + Find because it indexes most of our databases, so you can search across several databases at once. Alternatively click on the Databases button on the library website to search individually.
