Psychology 203 Information Management Assignment: Step Two: Find an Article in a Database

What Is a Database?






A Database is a collection of articles, book chapters and other information from reliable sources.

Select one of the databases listed in the middle column to locate articles about your research topic.

All of the resources in these databases come from magazines, newspapers, journals and books. Although they are delivered through the Internet, they are not considered "Internet Sources" by your professors. 

Articles from the databases may be printed, saved to a drive or emailed for later use.
