About Databases

Databases contain a collection of digitized print resources as well as ejournals which can be searched by keyword, subject, title, author, etc.. Each item retrieved in a database has been vetted through a formalized publishing process and can therefore be considered authoritative. Articles as well as books can and should be cited in the same way the corresponding print resource is normally handled.
