The how to of databases

A library database is an electronic catalogue or index which contains information about published items. Databases are searchable in different fields, e.g. the title or author.  Some contain the full-text of articles.  When you're searching a database, you are not searching on Google.  The Library pays a subscription, but you have free access.
