What is a Database?

A Database is a collection of information organised to be retrieved in an efficient way. This could be in different formats as follows:

  • Conference papers
  • Reports
  • Books
  • Patents
  • Standards

Some databases focus on a specific area while others cover a wide range of subjects, for example: Academic Search Complete covers a wide range of topics like Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Business, Political Science...etc. While "Communication & Mass Media Complete" covers Mass Media files only.
