Definitions for "Databases"
A collection of data held on a host computer or server which can be accessed via a telecommunications network or CD-ROM. See also Bibliographic databases and Full-text databases
Databases are electronically stored and organized information that can be easily retrieved. The Woodward Library has available many database files.
Databases allow you to search for journal articles and papers in any given subject area. Some of the databases are full text which means you can print or download a copy of the actual paper or article that you find in your search. However, many of the databases are not full text. These databases supply you with the title, volume number, issue number and publication date of the journal or publication which contains the article or paper. Once you have this information you can look in the UNSW Library Resource Database (LRD) to see if our library holds that particular journal or publication.
