In general, a database is a collection of information organized for quick and easy access by computer. The Library District refers to databases as eSources.

Think of a database as an electronic filing system. The eSources on the library website give you free access to variety of premium information such as magazine articles and encyclopedias and you can find exactly what you want much faster than looking through printed books.

Each Research category page on the Library District website lists eSources related to the subject matter. For example, the Business & Legal category page lists eSources used by entrepreneurs and investors.
