What's a Database?

Looking for scholarly articles online? A library database can help!

A library database is an online, searchable collection of publications that can include journals, magazines, newspapers, ebooks, images, and reference sources. Databases can include citations of the publications they index, the entire full-text publication, or both.

Some databases are general enough that you can find material from any discipline. Other databases are subject specific. Most databases you find through Middlebury Libraries are scholarly and have publications that are not available for free elsewhere online.

Search many Middlebury databases at the same time with LibrarySearch. Consult a Research Guide for subject-specific databases.
