What is a Database?

A database is an online collection of resources. Databases often contain articles from newspapers, magazines and academic journals, but can also contain reference sources, books, reports and a variety of other resources. Databases are often grouped according to subject matter, like the Psychology & Behavioral Sciences Collection or the Natural Sciences Collection. To find relevant information in a database, you will need to conduct keyword searches. See the box to the left about keyword searching.
