What is a Database?

A database is a collection of information.

Most often, in library terminology, this means an online collection of articles--scholarly journal articles, magazine articles, and newspaper articles.

Some databases are "multidisciplinary"--meaning they contain articles on a wide variety of topics. Other databases are more specialized and may focus on articles from a particular subject area such as business, history, or psychology.

Use Databases to Find Articles and More

Search@UW does not contain all of our articles. While it is a great place to start searching for articles, it should not be the only place you look.  Try exploring our databases to find more specialized content for your topic. To see a full list of the databases you have access to, select the databases button below. 

Select a database by title or browse by subject for more search options.

Once on the database page, we recommend selecting a database relevant to your research subject area, or try out one from our popular databases' list.
