What is a Database?

A database is a collection of online resources such as  journal articles, e-books, videos, images, newspapers and more. Databases can be subject-specific, or general, covering a range of topics.

Why search in databases?

  • Subject-specific databases can give more relevant results
  • Some databases have different search functions
  • There are databases that focus on particular resource types, e.g. newspapers, company data or videos
