Why use library databases?

We recommend that you start your research with library databases for several reasons:

1) They are consistent in describing publications; you don't have to worry about finding a citation that's missing a volume or page number.

2) They are clear about what they do - you know the time period covered, the journal titles included, etc.

3) Contrary to what a lot of people seem to think, there is a lot of information that isn't on the open web.  And some of that information IS in our subscription databases.
