What is a database?
From the Online Learning Library Center at GALILEO
The basic electronic information storage unit
A database is a collection of information organized to provide efficient retrieval. The collected information could be in any number of formats (electronic, printed, graphic, audio, statistical, combinations). There are physical (paper/print) and electronic databases.
The databases listed on this page are accessed through GALILEO, Georgia's virtual library. These databases provide a variety of articles, research papers, websites and other sources that can help you when you are conducting research.
One of the great things about using databases is that you know that the information you are getting is reliable, valid information. Also, using one of the sources in any of these databases provides you with your MLA citation! No more guessing about citation formats.
If you have any questions about these databases, feel free to contact Mrs. Nipper.
