Using databases

Databases provide you with electronic access to journal articles, newspaper articles, statistics, and more. Research databases may be subject specific or cover many different topic areas. Sometimes you'll find more of what you need by searching directly in a database than you will find in MultiSearch.

For more information see how to search a database.
