A database in general is a collection of information organized to be searched by computer. On the SCU Library Website, our electronic databases are collections of articles or in-depth reports that you can retrieve online.
The library has subscriptions to both general databases (example: EbscoHost Academic Search Premier) or subject-specific databases, such as LGTBQ or Communications or Ethnic Studies, among many others. These databases usually provide full-text access to journal articles.
Use " " when searching for phrases or to retrieve results using the words in a specific order.
Example: "Gay Rights" "LGBT adoption" "LGBT parenting" "Same-sex marriage"
