Recommended Databases

The library subscribes to a number of databases. There are two types of databases: general and subject. Which database you use depends on your topic and your research needs. A general database covers a variety of topics and may include both scholarly and popular sources. Subject databases specialize in a particular subject, and the sources indexed in them are generally from scholarly sources. These databases contain scholarly and professional articles, magazine and newspaper articles, reports, statistics, case studies, book chapters and eBooks.

The databases on this page have been selected as being of particular value to your class.
