MODULE 5: Additional Database Information Sources:
Section 2 of 3, SHOW AND TELL, page 7 of 7.


Reference works.

Many of the library databases gather numerous information sources in one place. For example, they provide access to numerous books, or to articles from thousands of different journals.

Other databases, while they may provide access to only a few or even a single resource, are no less valuable. Two examples of such resources were shown earlier in this module—Annals of American History and Associations Unlimited.

Below are brief examples from three more such databases. The basic use of each of these databases is relatively simple and so no instructions are provided here. As with all databases, if you want to learn more, just look for the help link.

EXAMPLE 1 OF 3: Encyclopedia Britannica


EXAMPLE 2 OF 3: Europa World Plus

EXAMPLE 3 OF 3: Oxford English Dictionary
