Databases are collections of online information (articles, both scholarly and popular, books, conference proceedings, statistics, etc.) organized for easy keyword, subject, author and other types of searching.
These are subscription resources paid for in part by student fees and as such are acceptable resources for college level research.
A Google tool that limits your search to scholarly, academic or peer-reviewed articles.
For maximum benefit when off-campus:
Note: Google Scholar does NOT search all our databases.
