What is a Database?

A library database is an electronic collection of information and documents, including newspapers, scholarly journals, legal materials, and more. 

Databases are not considered "the Internet." We use an internet browser to access library databases but we are not searching a website. Unlike searching Google, using a library database will allow you to:

  • Limit a search by keyword, author, date, publication, etc. 
  • Find reliable sources such as peer-reviewed or scholarly articles
  • Avoid paywalls or other paid subscription content
