You will learn about library databases and how to use them to search for information.
Search within these databases for information on events and people, or on topics that deal with multiple subjects.
Search for articles using keywords that describe your topic. Watch this video demonstrating how to get your keywords.
Watch this video demonstrating how to combine your keywords using Boolean operators AND, OR, or NOT.
A library database is a collection of information (articles, ebooks, etc.) published electronically by a credible publisher.
Although you use a computer to search within databases, they are not the same as websites.
You can use almost all of the library's databases when you come into the building and log in with your library card.
Some databases can also be used from home. For each database, look for the house icon with the word "Broward" to know if it can be used without having to come here.
