Research databases


 What is a database?

   A database is a collection of information that is search-able

    through specific keywords. Databases are compiled from

    magazine, newspaper academic journals, and more articles.


 Why do I need to use a database

   If you are writing a paper for school or work you most likely

    need reference to avoid plagiarism, give credit to ideas used by

    other authors, and to have the correct facts.


 How do I pick the right database?

     EBSCO is our main database however, EBSCO has made

     it possible to search by age groups, specialized fields or a

     general search.


 How do I search the database?

    You will need your library card number



 I need more help

     You can call the library and talk to a staff member at

     775-372-5340 or email or try the chat box.
