What’s the difference between "Research Databases" and "Publications?"
Last Updated: Jul 24, 2020     Views: 102

Great question! Databases are collections of various types of content, and publications are materials like books, journals, newspapers, or magazines.

If you’re looking for resources on a specific topic or subject, we suggest you start with our Research Databases to locate specialized materials more quickly.

If you need to find a specific journal, magazine, newspaper, or book by name, search our Publications.

If you have a subject that you would like to research but aren't sure what database you should use, review one of our How Do I pages or select from our Subjects for a list of recommended databases.
