Database of the Month is an email sent to the faculty, graduate students, and others served by the Parrish Library.

Each email is a snapshot of one of our relevant and beneficial online resources.  It is intended to give a brief introduction to a database that can support research and instruction.

How to Find the Right Database

There are three good ways to find out which database will help with your research question. 

First, go to the Database of the Month tab above and search for your term, such as news, by using the Find tool in your browser... hit Ctrl F and then enter your term in the search field.

Second, you can go to the Database of the Month tab above and browse the list of databases. The tags should help.

Third, contact a librarian and ask for a recommendation.
