Databases: Research Super Tools
January 15, 2009
The UC Merced Library provides access to some 250 databases. Some of these are free databases (like Google, for example) that anyone can access with or without the Library. Some are proprietary databases (like Web of Science) which the Library licenses at costs that can reach thousands of dollars per year. These databases allow you to find and access information resources, including journal articles, that you cannot otherwise discover.
