Rhetoric: Articles, Journals & Databases


Library databases are electronic catalogs or indices, contain information about published items, and are searchable.

Some items indexed in library databases include journals, magazines, books, newspapers, book reviews, publications, and dissertations.

Many library databases provide at least some full text articles, but some may only provide abstracts (summaries) or citations. A citation typically consists of author, title, source (title of publication), publisher, and date of publication.

Library databases differ in what they cover. Some library databases index items from many subject areas and others index items from a specific academic discipline.  View all the FAU databases by subject here : Databases by Subject
