Article Databases

Article databases (also called Electronic Databases) include the citations of articles in magazines, journals and newspapers.

Some article databases contain abstracts or brief summaries of the articles. A few contain the full text or entire content of whole articles as they originally appeared in the periodical.

Online article databases, purchased by the Franco Library are accessible from the Library Web site.
