How to make the most of Library Databases

The video above shows how to get started using our library databases to access reliable and up-to-date information.

Why use library databases at when we have Google?

Here are four reasons:

  1. Databases go beyond Google to provide an in-depth collections of information that is not available on the Web for free.
  2. Library databases save you time by helping you quickly find high-quality articles related to your subject. These organized collections of information allow you to narrowly focus your search in ways that search engines do not.
  3. The information contained within library databases has gone through an editorial process and as a result are more reliable than the average information found on the web.
  4. Despite its size, the Web holds only a fraction of the world's published information.
