DATABASES
Why are databases better than GOOGLE?  Answer:  Through the Library’s online databases you have access to the complete and authoritative text of thousands of magazines, journals, book chapters and newspaper articles. Most of these copyrighted resources cannot be found using Google, Yahoo or other Internet search engines but they are accessible in school by clicking on the below links or from a home computer at any time of the day or night (make sure to pick up a password handout in the school library).  How databases and search engines differ .
