What's a database (and why should I use one)?

A database is a collection of resources, such as magazine, journal and newspaper articles, census records, pamphlets, and more that you can search from a computer. Some databases even have entire books! Most databases provide a combination of summaries and the entire article (full-text).

Why would I want to use these?

Have you ever needed information and someone else had already borrowed the book? Have you found yourself spending time searching on the Internet and trying to decide which information was accurate and current?
The articles in the information databases are:

  • accurate
  • objective
  • current
  • reliable
  • easy and quick to find
  • covering a variety of subjects such as medical information, genealogy, consumer help: it’s all there!
