Library Databases

Online databases are THE BEST tools to use when conducting research because they contain highly accurate information that has been extracted from specialty encyclopedias and academic journals. These databases are available only through libraries that subscribe to them.  They are not accessed through what's known as the free or open web (websites that one can access through a Google search).  Use the subject headings below to find a database that will help you in your research! 


Why use databases?  Watch this video to learn more!
