Databases are commercial products that bundle a variety of resources into a single, easily searchable interface. Database contents are primarily articles from scholarly journals, but include popular magazine and newspaper articles, and audio visual materials as well.
The state of Arizona provides free access to Arizona residents to several that may be used in STEM research. You will access these databases by entering your zip code.
Students in Pima County may access other databases by having a library card and going to their nearest Pima County Public Library. Ask the librarian to help locate the databases.
If you are near the University of Arizona Library, or another large post-secondary school (for example, ASU) you can go to the library to access its databases on one of their public computers.
