About Library Bibliographic Databases
Library databases are specialised search tools. They are useful for finding articles and papers that focus on a specific study area. They can also be used to find highly specialised information like evidence-based medical information, company and industry information, standards, maps, images, statistics, theses, patents and legal resources.
There are indexing and abstracting databases and also publisher / society full-text databases than may contain a mix of document types.
