Why Use Library Databases?
The library’s research databases are free and contain a much higher percentage of authoritative and credible journals, books, and articles than relying on internet resources alone.
Utilizing the library’s databases saves the researcher time by allowing students to search and filter exclusively for the types of materials they need including scholarly, peer-reviewed sources.
All sources found through the library databases can be easily cited using the preformatted citations provided in each item’s listing.
