Use databases to locate journal, magazine, newspaper or specialized articles. You can also use databases to find images. You will need your COD MyAccess username and password to access these resources from off-campus.
Databases are organized collections of information that you can search on a variety of fields, like title and author's name. iTunes is a database and so is Amazon. Even your contacts list in your phone is a type of mini database. The Library has databases of articles from newspapers, magazines and journals. We also have databases of streaming videos, music and e-books. The difference between our databases and iTunes or Amazon is that our stuff is free for you to use.
You can browse the library's databases here: https://library.cod.edu/az.php
Use the right database for your research purpose. If you are looking for business articles, use a business database. If you want articles about art and design, look in an art database first. If you aren't sure what you are looking for, get started by using a general database like Associates Program Source.
