What is a Database?
A database is a collection of information that is made searchable. The EVC Library Databases include content from reference sources (such as encyclopedias) as well as articles from magazines, journals, and newspapers.
If you'd like more information on how magazines and journals differ, please refer to the EVC Library handout available at the library reference desk. (Also available as a downloadable PDF.)
