What’s a database?

A database is simply an electronic collection of information.

Library databases provide information to help students conduct research such as academic journals, eBooks, newspaper and magazine articles, online encyclopedias, videos, and images.

Why use them?

They’re designed specifically for students, they contain highly credible sources, and they’re incredibly easy to cite. Many allow you to highlight and annotate an article online and save it to your Google drive.

Your librarian is happy to help if you need any assistance.
