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 http://www.bplonline.org/ when we have Google?
Here are four reasons:
- Databases go beyond Google to provide an in-depth collections of information that is not available on the Web for free.
- 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.
- 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.
- Despite its size, the Web holds only a fraction of the world's published information.
