Different Databases = Different Information

 
Different Databases = Different Information

Different databases search different sources and types of information. Match the type of information you need to the database you choose.

Understanding the Differences

Be sure you know the difference between the database name and the database provider that hosts the database. For example, EBSCOhost is the name of the database provider that hosts Academic Search Complete but it also provides access to many other databases.

 

Hot Tip
Roll over me.
Usually the name of the specific database you are searching is in smaller print and located near the top of the page. Links to other databases from the same company are often close by.
