A library database is an electronic collection of records containing either full-text documents (text, video, music), citations, or abstracts of articles (or chapters in books). Databases index and point to the scholarly, trade, and popular writing or primary sources on a topic, so that you can:
Rider University Libraries subscribe to over 100 research databases that contain journal, magazine, and newspaper articles on general and specific disciplines, as well as access to streaming music and video.
Databases can be interdisciplinary (spanning several disciplines) or subject-specific (focusing on a particular discipline, such as history, psychology, or literature.)
These databases are available to Rider’s students and employees 24/7. For off-campus access to the databases, use the University’s EasyPass system. Access the Rider Universities libraries’ databases at http://www.rider.edu/library. Click Databases & Indexes.
