Introduction to Databases
What's a database?
Digital sources (whether they are books, government reports, or articles) are accessed through databases that the library subscribes to. A database is a collection of information that has been brought together, and structured so that the user can search it. Publications that the library previously purchased separately have now been grouped together in digital packages that can be searched in many different ways.
Because each database is unique, the BMCC Library Faculty have selected over 100 databases on many different subjects and have contracted with the publishers of the databases to offer these resources to our students, staff and faculty.
A very large portion of the material available through our database page is unique, and is not available on the “Free Web.” You are given access to it because you are enrolled at BMCC.
