For our purposes, a database is a searchable collection of materials (newspaper, magazine, encyclopedia, academic journal articles, audio files, pictures, videos etc) provided by the library. Many of our databases have access to full text articles, and can be viewed from any location that has an Internet connection. Articles found in databases can be saved, posted to social media sites and printed. We have a many different databases that have collections focused on specific areas of study (nursing, literary criticism, biology).
