What Is a Database?

A database allows you to search through a vast collection of journal, magazine, and newspaper articles, as well as essays in books and conference papers. You may search by topic, author, or article title.

Some databases are "full-text" (i.e. provide the entire text of the article), some are "idexes" only, also called "bibliographic" (i.e. point you to the source of your article without providing its text), and some are a mix of the two.
