Information from reference databases

What is a database?
A database is a collection of searchable information:

  • In a specific subject (such as Science or Literature) or
  • From a particular set of sources (such as newspapers and magazines).

Why should I use one?
Database searches:

  • Can save time.
  • Give you more useful/suitable results than Internet Search Engines
  • Are available online 24/7 from home - all you need is a Campbelltown Library Card
  • Give you results from reliable sources
  • Give you results you can use in your bibliography

Go to the reference databases page to see what is available.
