So what is a database?
It is an organized collection of information that allows a user to search for a particular topic, article, or book. You can search for these in a variety of ways, for example, with keywords, subject, author, or title.
Information found through internet search engines such as Google are generally free. But library databases are purchased because these databases contain scholarly peer-reviewed articles and information. SRC library services pay a fee to database providers in order to access these licensed collections.
Accessing Databases from Off Campus
Access is available to students on all SRC campuses and from off campus with your library card number. When prompted for this number be sure to use a capital D and your digits with no spaces in between, for example D8691xxxxx.
