A database is a searchable collection of information. In library research, a database is where you find journal articles.

Each database contains thousands of articles you can search simultaneously, and quickly find relevant articles. 

  • Databases can include journals, newspapers, magazines, reports, newsletters and more.
  • General databases like JEWL can also include books, videos and audio material.
  • Often you can find full text; others show an abstract and citation.
