Environmental Science 010: Find Articles


Definition: Database

What is a database?

A database is an online collection of resources. Databases often contain articles from newspapers, magazines and academic journals, but can also contain reference sources, books, reports and a variety of other resources. To find relevant information in a database, you will need to conduct keyword searches.


Use the databases to brainstorm and explore topics.
