Glossary

Is it Library gobbledy-gook?  What we mean to say:

  • Keywords: Important words from your research topic or question. The more keywords in your search, the fewer search results you will get.
  • Database: A collection of information, usually electronic. Usually refers to a place you can search for articles in journals and magazines. Our databases are online and searchable. An example of a YCCC database would be: Academic Search Complete.
  • Subjects: To help you find information in the library, databases can be searched in groups by their subject. For example, you can find all of the Health Sciences databases in one list. Or, you may want to search the list of History databases.
