What Are Library Databases?

A database is a searchable digital collection of articles, eBooks, essays, statistics, music, images, and much more. Databases contain information that is:

  • Accurate- examined by experts in the field (peer-reviewed); information can be verified in other sources
  • Authoritative- written or published by an industry professional with credentials & qualifications; reputable source
  • Objective- information is factual not opinionated; purpose is not to sell or persuade user

Think About It!

How does the content from library databases differ from the content found on Google?
