What is a Database?


When you come to the library looking for journal articles or scholarly research, chances are you’ve been told to search the databases.  What is a database? It is a place where information is stored so that it can be found later.  Evans Library pays for subscriptions to over 50 databases, most of which provide full-text journal articles, access to ebooks, or other information.  Librarians from North Carolina State University have created a short video called Article Databases in Five Minutes.
