Using the college library database is a great way to build information and knowledge for assignments and essays.  Whether the information is for shorter style essays or a more comprehensive research paper, the college library database is a valuable starting place for research.  One important aspect of library databases is that the information, links, and journal articles that you will find represent more authoritative sources than if you had just 'googled' your topic on the internet. 

Using library databases during student research can prove extremely beneficial to your overall effort on an assignment, often resulting in higher quality information from well-respected authorities in their field.
