What is a database?

The databases you can consult from the Virtual Library are collections of electronic documents and texts that have been indexed. There are two kinds of database available:

  • Bibliographic databases: they provide basic information about the document (author, title, edition, date of publication, abstracts or reviews), but they do not offer access to the original text. 
  • Full-text databases

The Library subscribes to databases that allow users to consult journals, ebooks, conference proceedings, etc.

You can find them in the E-Resources section.
