What’s a Database?

Databases are resources the library provides (and usually pays for) that contain articles, information, statistics, and images, from magazines, newspapers, scholarly journals, and reference books. Some databases are general collections featuring publications on a variety of subjects and others are specialty collections. The library’s subscription databases are available for use in the library or remotely 24/7 with your library card.
