What is a library database?

  • Library databases are the BEST way to find quality, scholarly articles from journals.
  •  A library database is an online resource that the library subscribes to that indexes articles from print sources such as magazines and journals.  Each separate database includes different articles from a different set of journals, although there may be some overlap of articles included in some databases.
