Databases are subject-specific collections of scholarly articles, videos, e-books, and other materials. They are useful when you want to dive deeper into your topic or find sources not covered by One Search. Library databases are an essential tool for researchers as they contain the content of up to thousands of different journals. Vidant Health employees have access to a few more databases.
