What is a database?

A database is a collection of information, including academic journals, scholarly articles, dissertations, etc., which is often used for research and writing. 

 

Why should I use databases?

Databases provide the highest quality information available, which is often not available on the internet. Further, databases usually save time and effort because they provide a comprehensive list of sources.

 

Where can I access databases at Rhodes?

You can access databases through the Library & IT InRhodes webpage under the "Databases" tab. Or, you can click here for databases
