What is a database?

A database is a collection of information that is search-able through specific keywords. Databases are compiled from the magazine, newspaper academic journals, and more articles.

 

Why do I need to use a database

If you are writing a paper for school or work you most likely need a reference to avoid plagiarism, give credit to ideas used by other authors, and to have the correct facts.

How do I pick the right database?

EBSCO is our main database however, EBSCO has made it possible to search by age groups, specialized fields, or a general search.

 

How do I search the database?
