What is a RESEARCH DATABASE?
Periodicals - journals, magazines, or newspapers - are publications published on a regular basis (daily, weekly, monthly).
Indexes are finding tools for periodical articles. The primary advantage of an index is the ability to search by subject. Indexes may be in either paper or electronic format.
Electronic periodical indexes are called "Research Databases" in this library. Some contain the full text of articles. Some contain a combination of citations and full text. Some contain only citations.
The Boyden Library purchases research databases to support the curriculum and provide electronic access to quality information sources.
