CSU Library Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Databases are essentially electronic platforms that contain a collection of searchable electronic information.  The CSU Library subscribes to a variety of databases that support research for CSU students and faculty.  Databases cover academic disciplines and subjects by varying degrees.  Some focus on just e-books or dissertations, while others feature thousands of journal articles, news sources, and even multimedia sources.
An e-book is a book-length document with all the features of a book, such as individual chapters.  E-books are published individually and can be found in our e-books database.  Articles will range in size and are published with other articles as part of a journal, magazine, or newspapers.  Articles can be found in many of our databases.  For a list of all the databases we subscribe to, visit our A-Z Databases list.
