Choosing & Using Library Databases

Learn how to find which library databases are the best for searching on your topic and how to use the databases to your advantage--saving you time and energy!

Choosing a Database

Rider University Libraries subscribe to over 100 databases, where you can find citations and obtain access to reliable, quality, and proprietary information, popular, trade, and scholarly.

  • newspaper, magazine, and journal articles

  • white papers

  • company reports

  • statistics

  • book chapters/book articles

  • encyclopedic and factual information

  • 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.)

From the Libraries' home page select the "Find Articles and More" tab OR click on the Databases & Indexes link under "Research and Information."  From here you can browse databases by SUBJECT or ALPHABETICALLY.

For more guidance on the best databases for your topic, visit a Research Guide for your subject/discipline.
