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.
  • Even though a database is online, it is not considered an internet source.
  • Some of the database articles are available in Full Text, while others only include an abstract (summary).  When you search for a topic in a database, the resulting list of article citations will show if each article is available full-text in either HTML or PDF format.
