Proprietary databases to which Taylor University subscribes have distinctive differences from search engines such as Google or Google Scholar. A database, generally, is a collection of information organized to provide efficient retrieval of subject matter, specifically scholarly subject matter. They tend to be narrower in scope than Google or Google Scholar.
Prominent features of these subscription databases generally include:
Zondervan Library subscribes to over 150 research databases/tools that contain journal, magazine, and newspaper articles, as well as reports and other written materials on both general and specific disciplines. There are pros and cons for using each tool. Awareness of the content, organization, and precision of search capabilities of each can save time and yield the most appropriate and relevant results.
Call numbers will indicate where an item is in the Library based on its collection.
