More Than Meets the Eye: 300+ Databases at Drake Library!

Drake Library subscribes to a wide variety of research databases and has librarians who are willing to assist with selecting and working within the databases.

Drake Library offers a wide variety of databases that go above and beyond the popular general database, Academic Search Complete.  Our databases hold an immense amount of information and our reference librarians are here to assist in locating that information.

Offerings include a number of specialties ranging from the Diversity & Ethnic Studies eBook Collection to Naxos Music Library. Recently obtained databases include the New York Times, Academic Video Online and Black Studies in Video.

Encourage your students to speak with a reference librarian to find the databases that best suit their studies. In addition to recommending the best databases, librarians can also show your students how to achieve the best use of a database.

For example, did you know search results for the Cinahl Complete database can be limited to authors who are nurses?

Librarians will gladly assist patrons with their research questions – whether it is finding a 1943 government film on gas attacks or a SWOT analysis of the Metaverse.
