Databases A-Z

So what is a database? It is a collection of data or information organized in a specific manner so that the information can be easily accessed. 

In the library it is referred to as an online collection of scholarly articles that you can search by using keywords. This short video will teach you the basics of searching an EBSCO database.


Students: The library card number on the back of your SRC photo ID will give you access from off-campus to the databases. If you need a library card number please fill out the application on the Library Card Application page.
