What is a Database?

  • The Library databases are searchable online indexes that provide access to scholarly journals, full-text articles, magazines, conference papers, and other publications.

  • Some databases cover a single subject area, others cover many different subject areas.

  • Library databases are usually the best tools for finding journal articles in your subject area.

Architecture: Key Databases

When to use the Databases

Database searching works best when:

  • You have a clear idea of what you are looking for, and the key words that describe it.
  • You have enough background knowledge about your topic to quickly recognise relevant articles in your search results.
