  • Content is evaluated for authority and accuracy.
  • Information is stable, meaning it doesn't disappear after a period of time.
  • Through subject pages it is easy to find databases with information that relates specifically to your topic
  • Offer options to quickly limit or expand your search results to find the best articles for your topic.
  • Databases can have a specific focus, such as History Reference Center, or can be more general, such as Academic Search Complete.

The Internet:
