A database is a digital library where you can access articles, ebooks, images, videos, and more.
Rasmussen College provides you access to 70+ different databases covering a variety of different subjects. Whether you are looking for articles dealing with health topics, criminal justice topics, or early childhood education topics, there is a database that is perfect for you.
Click here to access our databases. You can use the drop down menu on the left titled "All Subjects" to find subject specific databases.
You may be asking yourself, "Why can't I just use Google?" While Google is a great tool for researching, it does have limitations. It comes down to quality vs. quantity. Searching the Internet may give you information faster, but databases will give you better and more focused information. Why spend hours sifting through Google results, when you could do one search in a database and find credible information much faster? Another bonus of using databases - Many create your reference list citation for you!
