Why Use Databases?

The Sacred Heart University Library subscribes to over 200 Databases on an annual basis. The databases are subscription resources that bring articles from a variety of magazines and/or journals into one place with a sophisticated search engine.  Many of the databases allow you to read the entire article online - in HTML or PDF. However, there will also be results that do not allow or include full text (PDF or HTML). 

What if there is no full text?

No worries! The library staff will obtain the article for you from another library. This is called InterLibrary loan.
