What is a database?
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: Academic Search Complete) or subject specific databases (example, English or Ethnic Studies). These databases usually provide full-text access to journal articles.
