Last Updated: Mar 20, 2024 11:01 AM


What's a research database?

A database is simply a company that collects published material not freely accessible on the web. These companies pay publishers for the rights to digitize the content of their publication(s), then gather the content into one searchable entity, and, finally, sell access to this content to institutions...such as a college library. 

These materials (such as research reports, case studies, professional articles) cannot be found on Google but, for academic research, they are reliable, vetted, edited, peer reviewed and the MOST reliable source of information.

The library subscribes to a variety of research databases. Below are recommended databases that may be especially helpful when conducting research in relation to this course.
