What is a database?

    A collection of articles
   and info from magazines,
   newspapers, scholarly
   journals, and other works.
   Many offer complete,
   full-text articles to print,
   save and/or email.
   Your tax $$ pay for this
   service which is why a
   library card is required.

What about Google
and Wikipedia?

   Websites can come
   from anyone.  They can
   be biased or outdated.

How do I use these?
