How do I use a database?

FAQ Categories: Magazine, Journal, Newspaper Articles

Each database is different. It is a good idea to spend a few minutes before you begin searching in the database to read the help features. Your searching will be more productive. Generally, databases can be searched by subject, keyword, natural language, or a variety of guided search methods that allow you to customize your inquiry. Of course, you can ask a librarian to help you!

Take a look at Section 4 of the GCC Library tutorial for information on how to use a database.
