Online Databases

Online databases provide two kinds of information:

  • citations for articles in periodicals (magazines and newspapers). When only the citation is provided, the database will provide a link to the library’s catalog if we own the publication; or it will provide a link to TIPASA, our inter-library loan service so that we can borrow a copy from another library for you.
  • Full-text of articles in periodicals. When full-text is provided, you can print off a complete copy of the article or, in many cases, you can email the article to a friend from the database.
