What is a Database?

A library database is a searchable online collection of published works. Many publications are subscription-based (also known as paywalled) and typically require a fee to access. The library provides free full-text access to high-quality publications that would otherwise be behind a paywall. Finding and using these types of resources for your assignments is crucial to your academic success.

Resources include (but not limited to):

  • Peer-reviewed, scholarly articles
  • Book chapters
  • Newspaper articles
  • Trade publications
  • Dissertations and theses

Explore History databases with descriptions and links below.

For a full list of databases subscribed to by the library, consult the Databases by Title page.
