What are the library databases and which one should I use?


One of the greatest resources the library
has to offer is its database collection. A fact that raises an important question.
What exactly is a library database, anyway? And how do you use one?
Fortunately, it’s nothing like this. A library database is an online collection
filled with academic information from loads of different sources.
Such as periodicals, like magazines and newspapers-Or reference sources, like books.
Even videos and music. And all of these resources have been paid for by the library, so they’re
available to you free of charge. But all that great information isn’t just
crammed into one database. Libraries have lots of databases. Each one
focused on a particular subject. Like Psychology- Art History-
Or English. All of which offer articles filled with valuable
information. Articles that are easily searchable and organized
by subject. And best of all, you can focus your search
on sources that are verified and peer reviewed. And if you still can’t track down
that perfect article- don’t worry.
There’s somebody at the library who’s fully trained and ready to help.
So together, you’ll always find- Just what you need
