Databases collect, organise and index information from journals, books, book chapters, theses and dissertations, magazines, newspapers and other sources.
Search for articles using databases by typing in keywords that describe your topic - remember to define the topic and think about the key concepts involved. Ask your subject librarian, Gcobisa Xalabile, for help if needs be.
