What is a database?

  • A database is a virtual collection of information.
  • A database will search many journals at once with your search terms.  When you search in a journal's website you are only searching that journal.
  • Usually this collected information is scholarly, meaning it is written by experts and reviewed by a board of experts.
  • Each database offers a different set of collected information.   
  • Access to most databases is through subscription.  You will need to enter the database through the library's website. If you are off-campus you will be prompted to enter your ICC computer login and password.


You can search directly in the search widget below.
