What is a Database?

Library research databases are an organized collection of resources, such as scholarly journals, periodicals, peer-reviewed articles, newspapers, eBooks, or media, available to users online. They are a powerful search tool providing students the ability to modify results and find credible information.

Partnering with OhioLINK, Archer Library has purchased access to database collections from vendors such as EBSCO, ProQuest, Springer, and Wiley. They are proprietary resources, meaning availability is restricted to Ashland University and OhioLINK users. For this reason, students are required login with their AU credentials to view and use from off campus locations.
