What are databases and how can they help me research?

LIBRARY DATABASES are large collections of information from reference books, popular magazines, scholarly journals, newspapers, primary sources, and sometimes multimedia sources. These reference materials cannot usually be found on the free web, but don't despair! The Connecticut Digital Library and the SVS Library provide them for you!
