- 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.
- This collected information is usually scholarly articles, 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.
Here are a few specific databases you may find most useful.
