What are Databases

Databases are large searchable collections of information made up of journals, books, magazines, newspapers, and more. They are can be multi-disciplinary covering a wide range of subjects or very focused on a single topic. What they have in common is that they contain information from reliable sources. The Library provides access to many databases for their students from their website, some of these are trusted free examples others are  subscribed   to by the library and will require the student to log on with a username and password.
