What’s a Database?

Databases are resources the library provides 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.
