World History: Articles

Library Databases

Research databases are the best way to find information for your assignments. They contain thousands of full text articles and can be about a specific subject or can be good to start general research on a topic.

The CCBC Library subscribes to many databases. This Guide includes some of the best to use for this subject.

Keyword Searching

Databases use keywords to search

Databases do not use questions to search

Basic things to remember when searching:

  • Spell everything correctly.
  • Think like a thesaurus
  • Combine main topics with AND (for example: television AND violence)
  • Databases are not as intuitive as Google or other search engines.
