Databases for eResearch & Reference

Database Guides


The Databases to which the Library subscribes constitute an overwhelming collection of newspaper and magazine articles, encyclopedia entries, reference books, and other academically-respected sources on many different topics. The sources come from reputable publishers and are written by scholars, experts, and professionals with credentials. Many fine reference books formerly in print have migrated to these online formats intact. Much of the valuable material in the library database collection is part of the invisible web that you will NOT find through a typical search engine.
