Database and e-journal collections

What’s in a database and e-journal collection?

The information contained in each database and e-journal collection will vary, but all provide basic bibliographic information including author, title, journal title, date and pages. Most will also provide an abstract (summary) and contain full text articles. 

Library databases are cumulative indexes of journal articles and other materials (reports, images, maps, historical ephemera, statistical data and more) covering a particular subject area, academic discipline, or group of related disciplines. Examples include JSTOR, Web of Science and ProQuest.
