A library database is essentially an electronic collection of published works. Most library databases index articles from journals, magazines, and newspapers, and some focus on specific disciplines while others are multidisciplinary (and therefore cover many different topics).  

You can search for content by keyword, title, author, etc., you can often add limits to your searches to help narrow down your results, and you can often generate citations directly within a database.

Articles can be accessed by doing a library search and refining search results under Content/ Material Type by choosing 'articles or 'newpapers articles'. Alternatively, you can can search in specific databases.
