These databases make it easy for users to search across multiple content types and content providers without having to search each provider individually.
Some databases offer access to a broad variety of content and are often good starting points for research. Other databases are subject specific and are useful for finding resources related to a specific field of research.
All of our databases offer multiple options for searching and refining search results, and many of the databases offer access to full-text articles.

In many cases, preliminary research to help formulate your research questions and solidify your research project can be best conducted in a general purpose database. On the other hand, if you have a solid research theme, working in a subject specific database often results in more in-depth content.
