Why Use a Library Database?

A library database is an organized, electronic collection of information that often contain a wide range of source types including newspapers, magazines, academic journals, and more! Library databases allow you an elevated level of access to scholarly content, making searching for peer-reviewed content quicker and easier! Check out our video on why you should use a library database for your research.
