The research databases (aka library databases, aka databases) are searchable online collections of articles (from magazines, journals, newspapers, and reference books), images, maps, charts, graphs, audio files, videos, and in some cases whole books. Most of the materials in research databases were originally published in print. The library provides access to databases as a way to supplement our print collections - there are far more resources in databases than we could possibly fit on our shelves.
For more information about using research databases, see Using the Library Databases.
