What’s the difference between "Research Databases" and "Publications?"
Last Updated: Apr 03, 2023     Views: 151

Great question! Databases are collections of various types of content, while 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.

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

If you want to research a subject 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.
