Getting Started with General Databases

A database is an electronic collection of information organized to help patrons access relevant information. Unlike search engines, databases are extensively tagged to help patrons find information and include citations. Below you will find lists of databases ranging from general to highly specific.

If you would like to begin with a broad search, try the following databases or searching in OneSearch@IU, our resources which brings together much of IU Libraries' content, allowing one to simultaneously search IUCAT, scholarly article databases, news and popular publications to retrieve a wide range of materials across subject areas.
