Why use a database?

•Using a database allows you to search for information in an organized collection. You benefit from this organization because it provides more relevant results. You can also search for keywords in specific fields, such as author and title, and limit the results.

•Databases also provide information in known sources, for example, printed magazines and journals. The content of databases has undergone a review process and the information is more reliable than information found on the Internet. Often databases provide access to full-text magazine and journal articles.
