Database of the Week Series

If you've ever attended a library instruction session, chances are you've seen a librarian talk about one of the databases, such as ProQuest Central, GreenFILE, or CINAHL Plus. Although those databases are fantastic, they are just a few of the resources that the library has. We've got databases that will help you learn another language, study for graduate school entrance exams, and find the full text of an article citation. In order to help library users know what kinds of resources we have, we've decided to profile some of these lesser known databases each week for the rest of the semester.

Every Tuesday, we'll profile a different database and show some ways it can be used by students, faculty, and staff members. We'll also give a few helpful hints to help you learn how to use them. This series will cover broad, non-subject specific databases, but we may focus on subject specific databases in the spring.

Our first "database of the week" will be A-Z Resource Locator, which is a great tool for locating the library's electronic resources, so be sure to come back next week to learn about it!
