What is a database?

Question mark        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 (MySRC) gmail logon. When prompted, select SRC gmail. You will be redirected to the SRC Single-sign-on (SSO) to sign in to use any of our online databases form off campus. For more information, check out the OpenAthens Libguide
