Library databases are online collections that search quality journal, magazine, newspaper and other academic sources.
There is no one database that covers all the resources available. Some databases will be directly focused on your subject, while others, such as Academic Onefile and Academic Search Complete cover a wider range of subjects.
Which databases you use depends on what you're looking for, it's a good idea to start with MutliSearch because it indexes a large number of our collections. You must bear in mind however that MultiSearch does not cover every single database, so it is important to have a look at each database individually and to become familiar with how to search them.

Most of the library databases are searchable using MultiSearch. Type in your keywords, when you find the article or document you want, click on its title. You will need to login using your name, ID and PIN. This will bring you into the database where you can view or print the article.
