What is a database? According to one definition it is " a collection of information that is organized so that it can easily be accessed, managed, and updated. In one view, databases can be classified according to types of content: bibliographic, full-text, numeric, and images."
Think of it like this: a cookbook is a print database. Recipes are organized in an easy-to-find format.
What databases does the school subscribe to? Databases cost money so we carefully select databases based on the courses offered at our school. The databases we have will help you with your various reseach projects.
Why use a database? Isn't it easier to Google? Yes and No. Databases contain information that has been checked for the ABC's of authority & accuracy, bias, and content & currency. You can trust the information you find in databases. Material found on Google or elsewhere on the web may or may NOT be reliable, factual or even real.
