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.
