What are databases?
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.
Associates Programs Source Plus contains popular and scholarly articles and videos for areas such as accounting, agriculture, childcare, computer science, cosmetology, criminal justice, culinary arts, fashion, fire science, forestry, graphic arts, hospitality, interior design, massage therapy, plumbing, veterinary technology, and welding.
Business Source Complete includes full-text, non-journal content such as financial data, monographs, major reference works, conference proceedings, case studies, company profiles, SWOT analyses, as well as industry, market, investment, and county reports. It covers all disciplines in business, including marketing, management, MIS, POM, accounting, finance, and economics.
