What is a database?
A database is an online collection of resources. Databases contain articles from newspapers, magazines and academic journals as well as reference sources, books, reports, videos, radio broadcasts and other resources. To find relevant information in a database, you will need to conduct keyword searches; for instance, "grading systems" or "teaching creativity." Find dropdown menus of databases on the library homepages. One lists databases in alphabetical order and the other by subject.
