Students of Luther Rice College & Seminary have access to a wide variety of databases to assist with their research needs. This section will review those databases and briefly explore their use.
A “database” can be defined as a collection of related resources on a specific topic or from a specific source. You may use a library database to search for articles from journals, magazines, and newspapers. Each entry in a database is called a record. For example, Academic Search Complete is a database of articles from popular magazines and academic journals.
