An introduction to the variety of online databases typically available at academic and public libraries. Discusses the different types of subject databases (e.g. statistical, legal, academic, etc.) and the content (full text versus indexing-only, document types) made available. Briefly addresses the use of article linkers to direct users to full text content, the use of boolean searching, field searching, and use of search limits typically associated with the advanced search features of a database.
