Databases are organized collections of records. In the context of the library, these "records" can be articles, ebooks, documents, or citations & abstracts. The professional databases in the library collection will give you access to a lot of information that you cannot find via Google (or find very easily). Almost all of the information from the databases is behind a paywall. But because you are a student or employee of Cleary U., you can access these resources for free by logging in with your Cleary ID and password.

That's a great question! Of course the answer depends on what you're looking for. There are general databases that are great for almost any topic. There are subject-specific databases that will give you only a very narrow set resources. So, how do you tell?
