Bibliographic databases

Computer databases hold vast amounts of data systematically organized to make searching for information fast and accurate.

Bibliographic databases store records of books and journal articles and are invaluable for research .

Library catalogues give basic information on titles, authors and publication details of books and journals present in a library collection. They also tell you where to locate a specificdocument. Other bibliographic databases are not restricted to an existing collection, but provide abstracts of journal contents, while a few even store the full text of articles. Although they are of different types, the underlying search techniques are similar.

For students and staff of Wageningen UR, a number of bibliographic databases can be accessed directly through the Wageningen Digital Library.

Subject oriented Information Portals are available to help you select the right database for your research topic.
