usually think of searchable electronic indexes and catalogs
when we refer to databases. The TCNJ
Library catalog, EBSCOhost Academic Search Premier, and Wilson Web are examples of electronic databases.
They let you quickly go to a topic in books or periodicals.
an electronic database each article or book has its own record,
which provides information about it.
Each record is composed of individual pieces of information called
fields. Fields include such information as the author, title, publisher,
subject heading, etc. for that item. Each of these fields is a searchable
access point to the information.
