Why use Databases?

Databases are rich with journal and magazine articles, newspaper reports and more.

Most library databases can be accessed off campus with your Student Network Login which is the same one you use to access Blackboard, the Student Portal and the student PCs on campus.

Journals V Magazines

Journals are similar to magazines in that they are published regularly (e.g. monthly).

Articles in journals are more in-depth and well-researched than magazine articles. They are written by experts in a particular field of study, and are based on the author's research.

Most of the Library's journal articles are accessed electronically through the databases.
