Library Databases: An Introduction

What Are Library Databases?

Library databases offered by the Millsaps-Wilson Library are intended to support student research, and students often use databases when writing research papers or completing projects.  Library databases often contain both scholarly and popular articles.  Most of our databases even offer full text.  If an article has full text, then this simply means that the full article is available to read instantly online.
