Question: The Library has 1,000+ databases. How do I know which one(s) to choose?


To help you make an informed choice, all library databases and electronic resources are categorized in various ways under the "Articles & Databases" tab:

  • General databases: These are multidisciplinary and useful for a wide variety of topics.

  • Databases by subject:  Click a subject link to discover the most relevant databases for that subject area.

  • Databases by format: Click a format (image, data, audio) link to discover relevant databases.


If you know the particular database you want to use, you can search for it here.
