Library databases allow you to search across multiple magazines, newspapers or journals at once. To choose the right databases to search, think about the type of information you want (scholarly journal articles or a newspaper article, for example) and who would be reading and writing about your topic.
Multidisciplinary databases search for sources across multiple disciplines. Many include a mix of scholarly and non-scholarly sources as well.
Subject-specific databases dive more deeply into the scholarly literature of a particular discipline.
TIP: Start your search with one multidisciplinary database and one subject specific database.
