Introducing New Information Databases for Research Needs!

What is a Database and why use them?  Databases are important tools to foster critical thinking and inquiry based learning. Knowing how to use databases is an essential skill for all 21st century learners. They provide an indexed collection of magazine, journal, newspaper articles, abstracts, and other information, which has been checked for accuracy and reliability by publishers and then licensed for distribution in online/electronic format.
