Databases

A library database is a searchable index of multiple electronic journals/magazines, electronic books, newspapers, images, audio files, or even video. Some databases provide the full ­text of articles from indexed journals or books, but others only provide abstracts. Some databases cover many different disciplines and subject areas, but a few only focus on a single field of study. The following databases below index thousands of materials, and some cover a wide variety of topics (like JSTOR) while others are subject specific (like Naxos Music) or format specific (like Films on Demand or VAST).
