Library research databases are subscription databases purchased by the library that contain credible articles from such sources as books, scholarly journals, magazines, newspapers, and videos. Material in library databases is either reviewed by an editor or peer-reviewed by experts in the field, and source information is clearly given. Information and sources on the web can sometimes be questionable or unknown.
