Q. How do I choose a database to use for my research?

Answer

Different databases contain information about different subjects or contain different kinds of research content (ex: journal articles, images, videos, etc...). You should choose a database based on the subject of your research topic or the type of content you are looking for.

You can find lists of databases by subject, as well as databases by content, on the library homepage. After reading a database description, click the "more info" button for a more detailed description including what subjects librarians recommend you use it for and what type of content you can find in the database.
